Ban Comic Sans

Stop everything you're doing and please read this important (and humorous) article from the Wall Street Journal. It's an epidemic, people. And I'm not talking about the Swine Flu. ••••

i loved this article --

"If you love it, you don't know much about typography," Mr. Connare says. But, he adds, "if you hate it, you really don't know much about typography, either, and you should get another hobby."

great quotation from a man who has been vilified solely because so many people like his simple font.

[i also love the author's referring to comic sans as "you know what," as if the font were Voldemort]

as an addendum to my comment, my kids are turning in papers on wednesday, and i saw a rough draft in comic sans. i had such a visceral reaction that if the final is in CS, this kid is not going to be happy.

reminded me of you [bloggers]!
