Bookman Old Style from 1989? Lucida Handwriting from 1992? Zapfino from...gasp...1998? How could you guys be so thoughtless?!

Wow, talk about minutia! I mean, it's great and all that he found snafus in the details, but wow, I don't know that I care that much. There is so much more happening on Mad Men right now that could be debated, like an interracial couple in the 60's, or a gay man in the 60's, or divorce in the 60's, or smoking, or the glass ceiling, or sexual harassment...I applaud this guys quest but I think he's looking for the wrong grail.
