So it is agreed: design by committee sucks. And we should actively it.
(so... how about adding some pretty script-style SIFR to the headers? 
with drop shadows?

how does it sound to for 10/25 then, as a target date/milestone to begin 
moving the design into Drupal?

If there is anything changing on th backend that the frontend people 
need to know about, can backend people make a note on the frontend project?
