As a budding author who has great respect for all literary heroes, I can report to you with pride (and a little prejudice) that Britain's Jane Austen will appear on the 10 pound note (worth about $15.00) beginning in 2017. She'll be replacing Charles Darwin. Her natural selection evolved out of protests that, come 2016, there will be no women whatsoever on British money, save the Queen.

Whether or not you have a love and friendship relationship with Ms. Austen, I'm sure you'll agree with me when I say, it's about time the good people of Britain cashed in on one of their finest heroes.

It makes a lot of sense and sensibility to me.
