Dear 100 Hour Board,

Is it true that the government is discontinuing the penny? I can't find any information on this that is more current than last year. I know they have been decreasing penny production for a while but I can't find anything that definitively says they will stop making pennies on such and such a date, etc.

- I love pennies

A: Dear cent,

No, there is currently no specific measure being considered that would eliminate the penny. For more details read "Penny Dreadful," from The New Yorker, which was written on March 31, 2008.
