    RIP, font. You were great in "The Client."

    I'm not buying the explanation. Something's up.

    Also, is this story of more interest to roadgeeks or design/font geeks?
    I am the latter but not the former.

    At least in my neck of the woods, I don't remember seeing many signs switch over from Highway Gothic.

    For the most part in Kansas, only the Turnpike Authority changed its signs to Clearview. KDOT stayed with Highway Gothic but has been slowly switching to mixed case on every road and not just divided highways, FWIW.

    I, for one, am excited about the forthcoming highway shield discussion.

    Texas will stay with Clearview just to gig the feds.

    Just you watch: The Feds will contract the highway signage out to Nike, who will start putting green lettering on green signs because all the younger motorists think it looks cool.

    Texas will go with Comic Sans All Block Caps because Jeebus says so.

    Protestors in Missouri are already planning rallies to support a black-on-black color scheme.
