Secret Service got a bit confused about which Springfield President Bush wanted to visit this coming Monday; the one in Missouri, not the one in Illinois. They finally got it right. I can just see that happening with Ashland, should he ever decide to visit here, since there are Ashlands from Kentucky to Oregon. Police sue man in New Hampshire; he calls them too much. Egyptian authorities have charged two men with endangering public health, saying they sold dog meat to the public in the days leading up a Muslim feast. The U.S. State Department has banned "Courier New 12" typeface, and from now on will use "Times New Roman 14." This applies to all diplomatic notes, and will offer "a crisper, cleaner, more modern look." I bet this went through a couple of committees before becoming policy. A German who trained
Nazi dog barely escapes prison. Almost two-thirds of a
Canadian unit headed for Afghanistan tested positive for drugs. They’re not going. A poll reveals that only
of Canadians would vote for Bush.
Regarding the 15% of the Canadian vote, I wonder if they or the US democrats realize that the Canadian vote doesnt matter. On the flip side, I d venture to say that 95% of Americans dont care what the Cannucks think.
Courier is, of course a sans-serif font. A study from a couple of years ago indicated that serif fonts were easer to read, thus a reader could read much faster with a serif font. The study concluded that this was due to textbooks being printed in a serif font. Most of us learned to read using serif fonts. The state department will probably have a substansial time savings on time spent reading!!!
Of course, Ill continue to slowly read No Left Turns sans serif fonts...
My favorite font is Garamond. Nice serif font.
