How many times have you confused the lower case L for a number 1?
It would be logical and make everyone's life much easier, if we used a lowercase cursive l instead of a number one doppleganger.
But making such changes can only happen when left or right wing tips get offended: such for politically correct purposes from the left...or rather snide spiteful like thinking from the right. Remember Freedom Fries?
If only a story about a minority group that was branded and teased about the lower case L, would we finally motivate the left wing.
While a hippy dippy socialist peace story about the letter L would motivate the right wing to change this letter. So that we don't confuse it, I with 1.
Prologically correct anyone?
