Well I'd +1 for below the black nav. But... even that's not my 
favourite. I'd much rather the right-hand column have a login and other 
good stuff.

Right now the mockups (not the PoC) have article information on the 
right column on article pages and other stuff on other pages. The right 
hand column is used very differently depending on the type of page 
you're on.

I really think that any navigation-type stuff, including incidental nav 
should remain in approximately the same place on all the pages. 
According to the mockups, we've got a right column that's totally 
different based on the page that it's on, but it essentially *looks* 
the same on every page (no totally "I'm different" look - *know* the 
text is different and there are other slight differences - so please 
don't bother pointing that out).

It's not awful, but really, I think it could be made better by putting 
more permanent stuff on the right hand column - like the weo design is 
using currently. And putting the author info
