    Not only is the bush administration against *** marraige, but also the font courier new 12:

    http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/afp/20040129/od_afp/us_diplomacy_offbeat_040129184026

    The image is the best part.

    Bush: "Courier New12 is teh suk +1."
    State Dept: "Times New Roman14 is uber l33t."

    I THINK THIS IS FONT DISCRIMINATION AND I WILL NOT STAND FOR IT!!!

    I'm going to write my congressman right now!!! And then maybe start some online petitions and stuff!!! Maybe I can get MoveOn.org involved!!

    With such an action as this, the only appropriate response is text based smileys. -.-

    No, the only correct response can be a nuclear strike on Microsoft.

    Why don't they choose a more sensible font? Like Wingdings...

    Honestly, wouldn't it be cool if they had to use exocet, the font for teh ubre g4me 0f....D14BL0 TW0 kek.

    Exocet rules. If I was a diplomat and got a diplomatic message, it wouldn't matter what it said, I'd be so impressed with teh sheer l33tness of the font I would support it.

    Yeah, everyone knows if you want to lengthen a paper, you put it in Courier. Also notice how just about everything is in Arial these days? This new world just isn't friendly to serifs.

    Arial looks way too kyrillic. That´s the reason they switched it...
