    Teen to government: Change your typeface, save millions

    From this analysis, Suvir figured out that by using Garamond with its thinner strokes, his school district could reduce its ink consumption by 24%, and in turn save as much as $21,000 annually.

    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    How much will it cost to change the type? A few grand a piece?

    Changing fonts takes four seconds on a computer.

    Conservatism - Save government money. Unless it's a Liberal's idea, then it's bad.

    No, I'm pretty sure if you want something in a new font you have to have someone retype it.

    Edit, select all, change font. Yes, it's that easy.
