Our state commemorative 25-cent coins contain a couple of oddities. Alabama, one of our most conservative states religiously and politically, honors Helen Keller on its quarter. Yet she was a humanist/freethinker and liberal. And Kentucky's two-bit piece has a portrait of former president George W. Bush smack in the center, though there are some who think that the portrayal, lacking a name, is that of Jerry Falwell from the neighboring state of Virginia. Check it out and see what you think.
