Is that where I got it? I dunno. It just looks right to me.

So glad I finally got some response to my brazen recapitalization of everyone’s titles when I hosted the F of F a few weeks back. I guess I’m hanging with the wrong crowd if I want to have bitter disputes over capitalization. I need to frequent library blogs more.
