Still think it's confusing as many websites use "blue" to indicate 
unvisited hyperlinks.  Of course, not a big deal since hovering removes 
any doubt.

Sounds like a great idea.  Though not sure if the author info is really 
useful to users..  Are you saying the news items are limited to the last 
three that were added? That seems like a strange limitation.  Seems all 
the relevant news should be available unless the volume of data gets too 
large..
