More Face-Lifting

Since John Lemon opined that the following, now-former masthead pic looked like some kind of polisci orgy:

I decided to make some adjustments to the blog's logos. Comments welcome--and as always, this is a all a work in progress (or regress, as the case may be).

I think a big fungus would be cool.

I will keep that under advisement.

Well, I'm certainly glad that you straightened out our perception of political scientists as orgy participants. I like the redesigned flag. Of course, I think the texas capitol building is bigger. ;-)

Keep those nifty econo graphs coming!

And the Texas capitol is made of that niftry Marble Fallas pink granite! ;)

In fact, I have some book ends made of the same stuff here on my desk.

And will do on the econographics :)

I dunno. I still think this should be a spot for social scientists to hook up for orgies.

Can you imagine Tacitus hanging out at one of those traditional Roman orgies? Who knows, perhaps they were inspirational?

The "look" is probably improved although the readability has decreased. It's rather hard to read the links against the orange marble backdrop. You probably should change either the font size or the color. (Maybe just blue?)

I was wondering about the readability of the links. I will tinker with it.

I think the links look fine, that happy '70s yellow background, on the other hand. Maybe a gold or bronze color to match the capital domes would look cool as a background. I think a dark background serves to highlight the rest of the page, which is generally lighter for readability.
