Why I'd Rather not.

All I could think of when I came to this...
The problem with typewriters was that they used monospaced type—that is, every character occupied an equal amount of horizontal space. This bucked a long tradition of proportional typesetting, in which skinny characters (like I or 1) were given less space than fat ones (like W or M). Monospaced type gives you text that looks "loose" and uneven; there's a lot of white space between characters and words, so it's more difficult to spot the spaces between sentences immediately. Hence the adoption of the two-space rule—on a typewriter, an extra space after a sentence makes text easier to read. Here's the thing, though: Monospaced fonts went out in the 1970s. First electric typewriters and then computers began to offer people ways to create text using proportional fonts. Today nearly every font on your PC is proportional.

Davis distortions

Wendy Davis is being thrashed for giving up her children to her ex-husband, especially for her older kid that had a different father.

How could she do such a thing!

How could any mother give up her daughter!

How could any mother give up her 23-year-old adult daughter!


The other "child" was 17 and in her senior year of high school.

Puts quite a different spin on it that the picture I've seen of Davis with her newborn and the baby's 6-year-old big sister.

Mom's Old Couch

Posting this screen capture from The Rockford Files (1976) for mom.  We had this very couch in our home.  Not the foot stool though.
