How to change the font of your post titles in WordPress default theme twenty eleven

I hate the Arial or sans-serif font that the wordpress default theme twenty-eleven uses on post titles. I prefer titles to be in a serif font for that theme. I finally figured out how to change this, do so by editing your stylesheet and finding the below entry. You then want to add the “font-family” line that is below and list any fonts of your choosing. Example shown below. You are supposed to make changes like this by creating a “child theme” but if you are too lazy, just remember what you did because if wordpress updates itself, these changes will be overwritten.

.entry-title {
    clear: both;
    color: #222;
    font-size: 26px;
    font-family: "Palatino Linotype", Palatino, serif;
    font-weight: bold;
    line-height: 1.5em;
    padding-bottom: .3em;
    padding-top: 15px;
