Too bad her newsletter is too hard to read to bother with. I doubt we'd care a fig if she used 7 or 20 fonts, or how many ampersands were present, if it didn't interfere so badly with comprehension.

At her level, enthusiastic isn't the word I'd use to describe her style. More like domineering. She uses type styles to dictate what is and what is not important to us. She absolutely refuses to trust us to be able to find what we need to know for ourselves. Unfortunately, her manner guarantees we won't see anything but the extra big and bold.
