Somewhere on this ball we call "Earth"

"Comic Sans was created for a talking cartoon dog named Rover.

But in the 25 years since its debut, the much-maligned, comic-book-inspired font has made its way into a Vatican-produced photo album of the pope, an NBA owner’s screed about LeBron James and, now, a formal response to the impeachment inquiry surrounding President Trump.

Attorney John Dowd used the font this week in a letter informing the House Intelligence Committee members that his clients — two Rudolph W. Giuliani associates — would not be submitting to their demands.

“Your request for documents and communications is overly broad and unduly burdensome,” Dowd wrote of his clients, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman. “The subject matter of your requests is well beyond the scope of your inquiry. This, in combination with requiring immediate responses, leads me to the inescapable conclusion that the Democratic Committee members’ intent is to harass, intimidate and embarrass my clients.”

On social media, though, the letter’s contents were nearly overshadowed by the font it was drafted in. Dowd’s choice of Comic Sans became a Twitter moment. At least one observer joked that the attorney should be disbarred." (More)
