Personally I don't see a problem; I asked for opinions and got them, a
wide range of them but all favorable towards the new design.  Now we're
just hashing out how best to handle a > 2000 pixel corner case.

I wasn't fully paying attention in my last couple of replies (long day
here), so sorry for swinging one direction and then another so suddenly.

Hey, that page looks somewhat familiar!  I don't know if a similar visual
"de-accentuation" would help or hinder the current site though; I am
leaning toward the latter but not sure.

In any case I think the more pressing concern is fixing the news article
segmentation; it could use some work.  This is best done on the dev site
so as not to disturb production until the design is finalized.
