The Reading Eagle unveiled its redesigned website this morning – only the second such redesign since the Internet came into being – and the Reading School Board joined in the celebration by providing a headline for the ages.
It's not at every meeting that a school board explodes. It can be quite a messy sight, much like the heads blowing up in "Scanners" or the explosion of the rotting carcass of a dead whale, which is some respects, symbolically, Reading Eagle Company represents.
So what's new at Reading Eagle.com? For starters, there is a search tool, that works; a scrollbar you can move from to side to side to access different stories; the pages are cleaner (even with all those exploded school board members); and readers can post comments on every story. (Well, three, or two, out of four ain't bad.)
All that's missing is the Powered by WordPress insignia.
