Hi. Just thought you might be interested to know that I used to read the Reader pretty thoroughly across most sections. Now that you all redesigned the paper, though, I don't. You want to know why? Because the point size of many stories/columns is so annoyingly small--like the main food feature and the music feature. I hate that small type that much. You might be wondering how old I am, thinkin' I'm some old fart. Well, think again. I'm in my mid-20s, and if I avoid reading a lot of your paper because the point size is so friggin' small, I'm guessin' that your target audience--which I'm guessing is way older--thinks the same thing. I'd read more of your paper if you would increase the point size in places like the music and food features. OK, that's just my two cents.
