Thanks. This is great. Suddenly it is all making sense, my obsession with Giambattista. :-)

I share a birthday with L

On the other hand, Cassandre committed suicide exactly the day before I was born, and his Peignot was actually an alphabet reform effort, so I guess the Cosmic Powers meant for that spirit to carry on?... :-)

Please, can the News & Events column not become a place for personal postings? I am sure that there are a lot of people besides myself that find additional junk mail very frustrating and a drain on their time.

I apologize for adding to this, but I am rather disappointed that Typophile doesn't police its postings in a more professional manner.

I agree. Discussion about News & Events should take
place in the General Discussion forum. Maybe there's a
way to add a link to the bottom of each News item so
that creating a new topic about it is easier.

(Sorry David, I guess you'll get this onbnoxious message now.)

Absolutely. We apologize for the inconvenience this has no doubt caused to the users.

The message board software is somewhat limited in this realm. Future posts will go into a queue where a moderator will have to approve them.

Hey, nice!
BTW, John Downer's birthday is in two days.

Mine is, of course, June 18.
