Is it just my monitor, or is there no blue whatsoever in John McCain's logo? Sure looks black to me. His design creeps me out--too military, sharp-edged, cold and ruthless--and the single star reminds me of the U.S.S.R.

Devon: Yes, that version is black and white, but most of the McCain campaign tchotchkes are in white type reversed on navy blue: https://secure.donationreport.com/productlist.html.
Agree with you about the military look. But apparently that's what appeals to his fans.

I have to defend my Globe copy editor, who handles the entire Ideas section, where this feature ran. The mistakes are not in the print edition; the headline and caption were retyped by the website staff, who introduced the errors. The good news is, they're probably fixed by now.

As for the logos: I was interested to see that none of them were in italics; not even the "change" candidates went for a forward-leaning font.
