As your host Brady Crytzer says, “Sit back, relax, and enjoy our interview. . . .”


  • Please return to the use of the Times Roman serif type face in the daily Journal articles. San serif (e.g. Ariel) fonts are very hard to read in body copy and should only be used for cutlines and headlines. I am having a hard time reading your last two articles because sans serif type is so hard to read. And I don’t like the narrowing column measure either. I love to print and read the articles but am discouraged by your ill-advised changes. I am an active member of a Sons of the American Revolution chapter in Roanoke, VA. I am a retired magazine editor.
