We debut a new font this week.
For our Person of the Year print salute to The Protester, the TIME editors wanted something special. Sometimes, that means finding the perfect Sans-serif. For the first time since the magazine’s redesign in 2007, TIME has added a new font – Franklin ITC Pro Thin. It’s just one of many details that makes this issue memorable to us.
Welcome to the family, Franklin Thin. We can’t wait to see more of you.
MARCH 2, 1904: DR. SEUSS BORN
On this day in 1904, Theodor Seuss Geisel was born. He would have been 108 today.
Most people know Dr. Seuss as the man behind The Cat in the Hat. But how many know that Yertle the Turtle was modeled after Hitler - or that Dr. Seuss created WWII political cartoons that denounced racism, isolationism and other issues of the day?
From 1941 to 1943, Seuss served as chief editorial cartoonist for the New York liberal newspaper PM, and his work commented on issues of the day. His political cartoons during World War II denounced isolationism, racism and anti-Semitism.
However, in Dr. Seuss Goes to War, historian Richard H. Minear, writes: “…it is a surprise that a person who denounces anti-black racism and anti-Semitism so eloquently can be oblivious of his own racist treatment of Japanese and Japanese Americans…. to realize that the cartoonist is the same Dr. Seuss we celebrate today for his imagination and tolerance and breadth of vision: this is a sobering experience.”

If Mitt Romney and a few Republican senators get their way, employers could be making women’s health care decisions for them.
Hands up who wants this for their office?
