Sharp-eyed viewers may have noticed that the BA blog has a new banner! If you didn't notice, then look up a few centimeters. See it?
All the Discover blogs got spiffy new banners to help individualize them, yet have a design theme to tie them together. If you look over on the right, at the sidebar, you'll see the blogs linked by their banners. That'll make it easier for you to read all the other science blogs enthralled to the Hive Overmind. If you haven't checked them out, you should. We have quite a variety here, and they're all really good.
