As it happens, I don't read your site because it's far, far too image-heavy and takes an eternity to load. : . )

Cmd-opt-ctrl-8 will do it.

the sidebar should be ignored, there's a lot of hurt going on there that needs to be fixed.

I wouldn’t use orange on grey, and the ALL CAPS SIDEBAR LINKS are a bit de trop.

I trust your print CSS uses only black markings of all kinds, with no background colo(u)r.

Hopefully the confusion is now over…

I really want to speak to your comment about the headlines. They absolutely get lost and it absolutely is a hierarchy issue. The font size on them is too small. As I scroll down, it's virtually impossible for me to quickly and easily see where a post ends and a new one (old one?) begins. If the type was larger, or if there was a simple dividing line, this could be easily corrected.

I do think the silver on the a:hover should be changed (silver on gray is rough).
