I came across this old article about a week ago and passed it around to a couple of my comrades who too enjoy HBO's (former show) The Wire. Apparently it is a favorite of our New President, and Casey Gane-McCalla over at the Huffington Post wrote an interesting (unfortunately only to those who know the show) article detailing the lessons Obama could have taken from the show.

If I can get these usable shortly after school starts (just this weight, and just the uppercase) I'll be satisfied with this as a winter-break project. I feel like I might have as much time left (refining & tweaking) as I have already spent constructing.
This is a couple of months old at this point, but given as we have just entered a New Year, (and I don't recall seeing this on any of your blogs, sorry if it was) I deemed it an appropriate (and interesting) thing to share. The update to the Shift Happens series:
