14-Year-Old Figured Out the Government Could Save $370 Million a Year By Changing Fonts

We hear countless stories on the interweb about the government not being able to put together a healthcare website that work.  Then, you stumble onto something like this about a 14-year-old in Pittsburgh who figured out how to cut $370 MILLION a year in government spending, you gotta wonder where all the smart people are these days.

For his middle school science fair, a 14-year-old in Pittsburgh analyzed different fonts people use when they print stuff out.  And he calculated that his school district could save $21,000 a year in printer ink if they switched from Times New Roman to a slimmer font like Garamond.  And if the state and federal government did it . . . it could save $370 MILLION a year in taxpayer money.
