Edit: To clarify, this is James Cameron, producer of Avatar, which uses Papyrus in its title.

No one can agree how to count how many types of people there are. You could ask two people and get 10 different answers.

It's James Cameron. The guy who made Avatar, with its dreadful Papyrus title.

I haven't seen the movie, but from the commercials, it looks like the font was slightly edited to take away the notches in it, maybe to make it look unique or to stop the typographers from rebelling, or whatever.

2010 so far has been a bad year for people who have tragically lost their lives in earthquakes. Still this makes it a GREAT year for geography teachers.
