Apollo 4 on column of fire

Two queries

1. How come the person who reported Mr. Gates’s entry into his home isn’t invited to the beerfest? Mr. Obama has made a mistake; it should have been the four of them for coffee.

This is how women are ignored.

2. How come this story isn’t more prominently about what one might call ‘Normal Coppal Fabrication’?

Type specimens, and please have pity on me

People might be interested in the printing type specimens I’ve been posting: http://pics.livejournal.com/chemoelectric/gallery/00015h58

Please feel sorry for me, because I just received this old Kennerley Bold showing, which was pristine, and then cockled and crushed the paper along its entire length when scanning — just missing the font specimen that I've posted, but damaging other text.

(If I weren’t being treated for my obsessive-compulsive disorder I would be absolutely beside myself right now.)
