The logo is cut off on the right edge. But, it's cut off rather nicely right
on one of the grid lines, so you don't even notice it. It does make it so
the Scott Kelly text isn't quite centered in the image, though.

Well, clear: is a CSS style that is aware of floated elements. Using
clear:left or clear:right, or even clear:both is designed to drop the
element down below any floated elements that preceed it.

Now, position:absolute takes an element completely out of the page, and I
still haven't found a way to ensure that another element drops below one of
those. Maybe there isn't a way.
