Several members of Congress, including Rep. Sam Graves of northwest Missouri, have proposed replacing the image of former President Ulysses S. Grant on the $50 bill with that of former President Ronald Reagan.

I am ' at least for purposes of a blog argument - willing to horse trade with the congressmen.

Put the Gipper's visage on the fifty, but put Grant's name on the new Mississippi River Bridge, which was designated the Ronald Wilson Reagan Memorial Bridge by the Missouri General Assembly in August, 2005.

Grant, as every St. Louisan knows, was a St. Louis businessman and county resident ("Grant's Farm'?). The US Grant Bridge seems fitting, right?
