Wow.. I know, I use this term a lot. What a great example of how important alignment is using the ballot from 2000. It is sad that something so poorly designed is associated with something as important as a Presidential election. That image was almost as powerful as the one on pg 33 with the poor girl that was hit by the drunk driver symbolizing Classical Conditioning.
I tried to use diagonal alignment on my Visual Timeline. This was hard to do. I am not sure what angle mine was at. I did note that if trying to use diagonal alignment in the future, that I should use the 30 degree rule.
