Observation #5007

Have you ever noticed how '&' is an ugly little symbol? It's a compact, brutal element of written language that, when used, rips the beauty out of your text.

Really, it depends on what font you are using... For the most part, the Times New Roman hegemony imposed on most of the web does lend itself to ugly &'s. But there are many fonts that have beautiful &s.

I've always though ampersand was a beautiful character, myself...
