Well hello there. As you may have noticed, Combat! blog got a salubrious redesign last night. In addition to its striking good looks, our new layout is more responsive to smartphones, iPads, and pools of still water under a blood moon. Our links got a little harder to see and a little more fun to hover over. We’ve added some useful new features, including the navigation menu in the upper right-hand corner. Don’t forget to click the Twitter icon on the left sidebar, too, so you can follow me. Oh, and no big deal, but I figured out how to integrate Grantland-style footnotes.1 What’s the occasion for all this self-care? Tantalism after the jump.
Combat! blog got all prettied up last night because we’re expecting guests tomorrow. I don’t want to spoil the surprise,2 but I’m super excited and proud. While I burn out my eyes watching the sun make its way west, how about you read my column in this week’s Missoula Independent? It’s about our new friend Lawrence VanDyke and the forces of legal mendacity that have shaped his candidacy at every turn. Read it and get really scared of corporatocracy.
And while you’re at it, how about you leave a comment3 saying what you like and, heaven forfend, don’t like about the new design. Is there some feature I missed that you’re missing, too? Do you hate orange? I’m keeping the orange. Pretty much everything else is fair game, though, except for the photograph of me as a ghost who has been eating Cheetos. That is not negotiable. We’ll see you tomorrow for Friday links with cat, cream and licking of self.
