Hey. You erased an entry (I think). What was it again?

Helvetica “signal a lot of bad vibes”??? As opposed to the hideous Serifa she specs? You’ve got to be kidding me.

Bad vibes for who, anyway? Whenever I see Helvetica, I sigh happily.

Seems like a job for Tufte.

Yeah I don’t think I’d choose Rockwell (or whatever that is) over Helvetica. It might need a better contrast in size or weight to the other text, but it’s not a bad font at all.
