We have hundreds of people on this list.  Maybe six of them know that
white and off-white are different colors, and I don't mean in hex.  Our
original logo was done by someone in NYPHP a long time ago.

On the other hand, it's nice how our "functionalism" all comes to the
same opinion.

And if we didn't have an Ike, we'd have to create him.  He's one of the
few who grasps (or imagines?) the interconnection of engineering and art :)

Other comments on 2, *if* that's the majority?

Agree.  Does the rest of the logo (New York City... bridge for learning)
match the fonts?

Seems like too many fonts going on with page.. .that, I do remember from
my pre-press days, is a no-no.
