Upon what meat have you fed that you can…

Small type, big mistake

Your typeface is way too small. Please look into this. If you need a little research—no cost—let me know.

Ever since I X’d out of the U of C in 1951, I have cringed, positively cringed—I can write ’49 Harvard but only “X” by U of C! And I slink away like a poisoned pup when hobbing and nobbing with those happy others who do not carry the stigma of “X.” Upon what meat have you fed that you consign us to X?

Finally, how many of us Xers are there? A change here would lubricate and loosen many X purse strings. What a pleasant thought. The carillon at Rockefeller would chime the more sweetly (just for openers).
