Comments: Ancient Money

That, of course, is because money is simply the westernized white man's way of dominating the other, that is, when a new paradigmatic hunter-gatherer, naturist ur-man develops, money will be seen for the heuristic, solipsistic, meso-differentia that it is.

And really--with all this excitement over a dollar, is there any need for a $20 tooth fairy? Absolutely Not!! I believe we will summon the same tooth fairy when our turn comes!

Currency is rather passe, when you think about it. That's why most tooth fairies now leave gift cards. Still, it is comforting to know that although such coinage is rare in postmodern society, the seems to be no sense of irony that the tooth fairy still manages to be so ubiquitous.

Our tooth fairy, when she actually gets around to doing her job, alternates between a dollar bill and state quarters.
