And twenty-hours later still...

...it looks like Dan Rather had his ducks all lined up in a row. Tonight's edition of the CBS Evening News has apparently buried beyond any reasonable doubt the claims that the memos from their "60 Minutes" piece the other night on President Bush and his time in the Texas Air National Guard were forgeries.

Now folks, this is responsible journalism: when you have backed up and documented everything to the best of your ability. Say what you might of this story and its repercussions, but you gotta respect Rather for making sure every "i" was dotted and every "t" was crossed (and every "th" superscripted for that matter).

Meanwhile, millions of armchair font specialists across the fruited plain are wondering why the heck did they just spend the past 48 hours studying forty-year old IBM Selectric typewriters with the "golf ball" print heads. To paraphrase the wise sage William Shatner, "get away from your stupid blogs AND GET A LIFE!!"

(But at least more people have now come to realize that Microsoft Corporation did not invent the Times New Roman font).
