WOW the fashion police are at it again. First there is this piece about ampersands.

Then there is the publication they reference

The fall trend among design types is to glorify the ampersand. To bad according to the University of
Wichita it seems to be a bit more pragmatic than that.

Web designers would not know an em if it hit them in the face, literally. I had a job as a typesetter in high school setting "hot type" or metal type. Worked there
for three years.

Web designers are always trying to justify themselves
and link themselves to a richer heritage than they deserve. PLEASE!
