Harriet Tubman's Gonna Carry Me Home

In case you didn't hear -- Andrew Jackson is moving to the back of the twenty dollar bill. To be replaced by on the front by abolitionist Harriet Tubman starting in 2020.

Truly wonderful news on several levels, and I only wish I'd had the stomach to listen to hate radio yesterday after it was first announced. The sound of Limbaugh/Hannity/Levin/et al's collective heads exploding over this must have been absolutely glorious.

Ha! I always think of the Long Ryders whenever I hear the name Harriet Tubman. I can't really think of her name being used by any other bands.
