Thanks for the kudos, all.

I will see what can be done about styling for phones.

and @Rob...well I wouldn't call these stories as much as just
"announcements" I guess, so they are somewhat different than our blogs.
Maybe we do have a bit more redundancy than we need however. I would think
anything that was sent out via the announcements mail list should perhaps
be entered in the "News" as well.  Just my .02.

I will work more on styling this week.

I may actually put ALL the old news items back in -- it doesn't hurt
anything and maybe folks would just like them as some historical reference.
