Sorry... that idea occurred to me after the fact.

It doesn't have a byline and photo, though in the admin area, I show up 
as author, also and unfortunately, I believe it shows up on the "track 
user" link for me. (I've complained about the info that shows up, and 
how it shows up, on these track user links before.)

If I knew the evolt.org meta user login, I'd have used it instead of mine.

I looked for, but could not find a way to turn off the comment form.  I 
hope that is changed in the new version of Drupal.  FWIW that's been one

I feel that all this rethinking is well and good, and some good ideas 
are coming, but I'm coming back to the feeling that as a first step, we

radical changes.  If we came up with a simple flexible template, we can 
potentially make it extensible.
