    Don't worry. The new design rules will only stick for a few months. Then, it's back to doing pretty much whatever you like.

    Last redesign got almost fatally watered down before we ever rolled it out.

    I've never seen a redesign a newshole cut couldn't destroy. I get it though. New editor comes in, wants to make a mark and have something to show for his time there and a redesign is pretty cheap and easy and very visual.

    We last redesigned in June 2005. Then from what I can tell, the last redesign prior to that was in August 1980.

    New editor tried to propose a redesign. Publisher watered it down so much that the editor gave up.
