I've been futzing with this site since day one. The left column has been a sore spot for me. On lower-res screens, the content would just disappear. Over the weekend, it dawned on me that some of the polititoons I've been posting were too wide for the page - and they were squeezing the left column out of sight (or more specifically, to the bottom of the page).
This is a long explanation for what I hope is now an improved and friendlier site (aesthetically speaking). Hope ya like it. I'm sure you'll hammer me if ya don't.
