Comment box, begone!

keyboard.jpgA few of you have been grumbling lately, with reason, about the weird comment box with a black hole in the right margin that hides text (especially, misspellings and typos) until your musings are published.

I’ve shared your complaints with a Web producer, who informs me that the entire blog is moving to a nicer format, possibly in a matter of days. The off-center comment box will no longer be a part of your lives or mine. Neither will the unseemly gray line cutting across the photo at the top of this page.

In case you’re curious, here is a link to another blog that has already migrated to the sleek new design. It’s almost too state-of-the-art for me. I don’t know how I’ll handle it.
