Removes plaque

This morning I was keynote speaker at an on-site retreat for a toy company here in San Francisco. It was just a steep stairway walk down from my Telegraph Hill place. Perfect weather. I carried a cuckoo clock with me and in the spirit of How Things Work I expounded on the physics of the clock on the sporty dais. Remember: the shorter the dog's tail, the faster it waves.

The retreat food look like the usual congealed gravy type so I skipped it. Before I climbed the steep hill back home I stopped by The Fog City Diner for an early dinner and was immediately seated in my regular booth. There were the brass plaques of the booth's regulars: Norm Sobel, John Folan, that Republican creep Hal "Morning in America" Riney, strawberry-haired Sandy Dalis and rubber heiress Elsa Trexler. Mine was stolen!

My question is whether you used Helvetica or Lucida Sans for the Powerpoint portion of your talk.
