What's that you say? "It looks fine without adjustments of the space between letter pairs?" Put down those pork rinds and pay close attention Cletus...I'm going to enlighten you.

Proper kerning is, in my opinion, the single biggest thing -- and the first thing I notice, that separates the work of professional designers from that of 'apprentice' or 'wanna-be' designers.
