Readers: What do think about removing conversations on the Top Stories page and replacing it with a recent post list? The list would be titles and a 120 character synopsis with no image or perhaps a small image. The proposal would allow everyone to scroll down and quickly see a list of articles from the past few days. Any suggestions or comments?

I find this two column layout of the Stories (with large banner images) rather difficult. One wider, slimmer column for Stories, listed in chronological order with minimalist images (say small image to the left of the lead sentence) would be much better. This would make the above suggestion rather less important.

Yet another bug that I noticed. When you scroll either the main page or the article, the right side "Conversations" scroll with it. It would make sense if it stayed put.
