Dear Winston-Salem Journal

While I recognize that in all likelihood the decision to change the font used for obituaries was an economic one, the particular font you have chosen is so small and tightly clustered that it's nearly impossible to read, even for me. And my eyesight is good! In my experience, a good percentage of the people who regularly read the obituaries are older folks, who are more likely to have less than perfect vision, so this kind of seems like stabbing your audience in the eyes, figuratively speaking.

The boxed Deaths list especially is almost illegible.
