Proto-dynamist

Uploaded a banner for our blog. I'm not totally satisfied with it and may change it later in the semester. Suggestions welcomed.

Some thoughts about the reading from The Future and its Enemies. Both Postrel, and Kyle in his comment, say that our government today is driven by technocratic methods. I agree with this assessment, but it also brings to mind the proto-dynamist mindset of the Founding Fathers, who set up a flexible structure that allowed for change, growth and individual representation. 

Also, Powell's Books (best bookstore ever) has copies of The Future and its Enemies for two bucks. I'm looking forward to reading more.
