SEATTLE TIMES 'ELIMINATE THE CENT' EDITORIAL

Dick Johnson writes: "Perhaps the editorial writer at the
Seattle Times watched the 60 Minutes TV program the day before,
but it published yet another editorial that took an opposite
view of Morley Safer's 'kiss up' to the U.S. Mint broadcast
last Sunday. Is such a comment late to the party or does it
add yet more weight to the public's view to abolish the cent
as a denomination.

"The writer knew of the zinc coated steel cents of 1943 and
pointed out their discontinuation after only one year. It also
mentioned the diminished purchasing power of the cent. Good
arguments both. Read and form your own opinion."
