Hi Tyler,

Do you know if the code you're using is sanitizing the titles?  I'd hate
to see nasty code being run on our site just because a member's blog got

The layout seems a bit odd to me.  I think we need section titles over
each of the news and events areas.

I'd personally have moved both the news and events into the left column,
brought more Planet OSGeo items into its own area on the right to
balance the layout, and left the footer as a footer.

I changed a couple things on the front page, including adding a block  
showing the planet feed.

In order to keep the central columns vertically balanced I moved what  
used to be the footer into the left (left-central) column and  
adjusted the number of items in the events and news lists.

A couple things I'd still like to change, but not so confident in  
doing so :)
1- handle vertical spacing between blocks better
2- remove (or make more consistent) some of the outlines used around  
the central table and the interior blocks
3- have "more" link from planet block go to the actual  
planet.osgeo.org url instead

Hope it works for you all.  Let me know if you have any more changes  
or rollback  suggestions ;-)
