    Just set this up yesterday, tinkered a bit with the settings, and posted a few entries:

    Unfit

    Comments of any sort would be greatly appreciated. I know it's not the most attractive blog, but it seems usable until I figure out what changes are necessary. I'm especially interested in whether or not people understand the concept of the blog without my having to explain it. If you know of any blogs doing a similar thing, that'd be interesting too. Thanks all.

    Looks good, and interesting content.
    Maybe you wanna change the text color in the footer to white, so they are more readable.

    I'd suggest a deeper contrast between the background color and the menu/content areas. Maybe a darker gray for the Gray Lady.

    Holy cow! Sounds awesome.

    I know Robert Coover also does this with Time magazine in his novel "The Public Burning", which is from '69 or '70 I think.
