Heads or tails

Legal tender in Camelot: After making subtle tweaks to the design over the years, the U.S. Mint will restore the John F. Kennedy half-dollar coin to its original 1964 look.

The restored design is said to be truer to the real JFK — which presumably means that Marilyn Monroe appears on the flip side of the coin.

No smoking within 1.5 million feet of fresh ocean breezes: The state of Oregon plans to ban smoking on all 362 miles of its Pacific Ocean coastline.

Oregon already has banned smoking at its state parks, which means nicotine-addicted campers face a long walk to the nearest official Oregon smoking area: a couple of battered surplus park benches and an overflowing dumpster behind a strip mall just outside Springfield.

And maybe a free toaster, too: Despite all the, ahem, buzz, the digital currency bitcoin has been slow to catch on in Snohomish County.

Perhaps a promotional campaign would help: “After 12 transactions, get a stolen credit card from the East Elbonia mafia ABSOLUTELY FREE!”
