Blog Note

Please bear with me as I update the template. Things may look a little funny for a few minutes…

Update 1: Okay, things are pretty much a go now. Few things with which Space Cowboy and I still need to tinker, but overall, it's pretty much there. Let me know in comments if you're having problems with anything.

Update 2: For those who aren't aware of the context for the teaspoon reference, it started with my post on International Human Rights Day, when I said: "Today is the final day of the 16 Days of Action Against Gender Violence, during which I suppose I have blogged exactly as often as always about violence against women, in America and abroad. Sometimes it feels like it's all I ever write about; sometimes it feels like I can't possibly write about it enough to do the issue justice; often, those feelings exist within me simultaneously. All I ever do is try to empty the sea with this teaspoon; all I can do is keep trying to empty the sea with this teaspoon."

From that came the Shakesville Silver Teaspoon for Random Acts of Feminism, and a whole lot of subsequent references to teaspoons in these pages, when we are feeling crushed by the vastness of the work to be done.

Update 3: We're still tweaking the template and working on some of the issues that have been raised in comments, particularly as regards load time. Please bear with us as we iron out the kinks. And keep letting us know of any problems you experience with the new layout.
