Swiss Summer

We leave tomorrow morning for Switzerland! We will be living in Geneva while my wife is doing an internship at the World Health Organization. I hope that we will have as much fun as the people in the photo above!

If any of you have suggestions of what to see or what to visit in Switzerland, please let me know!

Dear Doug,

As the Tycoon of Typography, could you please explain the push to ban comic sans (

Is this simply an uproar within the typography world in the same way that Web site/web site/website is with us grammarians?

Dear Correspondent,

If you had the opportunity to drive a nice Mercedes, why would you ever drive an ugly, poorly designed 1981 Ford Fiesta?

The same is applicable to the use of Comic Sans. It is ugly, poorly designed, and sadly, far too common.

Sooooo ... To typographers, Comic Sans = an ugly, poorly designed 1981 Ford Fiesta?

That's good to know. And I promise never to write you a letter or e-mail in Comic Sans. :-)
