Edit: added a rough sketch of the idea
I was reading the New York Times this morning and was checking over the "News Summary" section. It has all the headlines in that section with one or two sentence summaries of the articles. This sounds like a great idea for my livejournal design.
It'd be sweet to somehow include the first few sentences of a entry in the page summary component.
But then again, even if that were possible, it'd have to be in the center of the page, which would be a problem for the component layout.
Ugh. If anyone can make sense of what I'm getting at and has any ideas, let me know. Thanks.
