Chris Suellentrop and Chris Orr gamely consider my plan to replace the penny with the nickel. If the NYT and TNR and TAS can all come together on this important issue, we can avoid having to heal the soul of America by electing Barack Obama. Or maybe we can save the penny and ditch the nickel simply by securing the Chris vote. Imagine if every Chris in America -- even just Chrises with blogs -- traded in their nickels for pennies. What an unboring media event that would be.
