I’ve been playing around with the layout here a little bit, sort of like rearranging the furniture and repainting.  I’ve been afraid of completely blowing up the template by changing much, leaving the site a smoldering heap of disconnected bytes.  Nothing against Salon, but I’ve been wanting to get rid of that standard Salon banner with the creepy glistening lips for a long time, and finally took the plunge.  I feel like I’ve defaced a billboard, and Clear Channel’s private detectives will be breaking down my door any minute, but I also feel the sense of accomplishment that would accompany spray-painting a moustache on an Ann Coulter poster. 

I’m a little braver now with the HTML, maybe things will look less drab around here.
