A NOTE ABOUT INTERNET EXPLORER & FIREFOX BROWSERS
If you're reading The Capital Spectator using Internet Explorer, this web site should look fine. Reading the site with Firefox, alas, throws the web site askew. We're looking into making sure that CS reads cleanly in all browsers. Unfortunately, this is a daunting task for your technologically challenged editor. To paraphrase Star Trek's Dr. McCoy, "I'm a writer, not a web designer."
In any case, until (and if) we solve this technical glitch, it's best to vist the Capital Spectator by way of Microsoft's Internet Explorer. Thanks, and sorry for any inconvenience.

The wrench in the machine is/was the code for the MP3 player for the podcasts. Apparently the code was wreaking havoc for some versions of Firefox. Through a bit of experimenting, the offending bit of code has been adjusted and so all should look fine now. Alas, the pages via the links at the top of the site don't look right in Firefox, although we'll soon fix that as well. Never a dull moment in web management.

It works fine for me in Firefox--and I'm looking at via an AOL dial-up from deep in the forests! (No problem with broadband at home either.)
Apparently you have fixed the problem (which I never had).

I can report that the site looks great in Google's Chrome browser.

It works fine with Safari - which is a nice way of telling your readers to stop wasting time rebooting and get a Mac!
