Shrinking overhead

I'm going to miss those Google ads at the top of my site. Sure, they were ugly. And pretty much useless to readers. But they were earnestly trying to interpret my writing, and I can appreciate that (despite the occasionally strange results). Once, for instance, I wrote about putting in a nasogastric tube, and google plugged a bulemia treatment center.

Besides looking better, the new NavBar doesn't do a lot (but I don't think that blank space will go unfilled forever). Their search function already beats my Atomz bar on the right. And the "next blog" button is kind of like the portal in Being John Malkovich.
