Update B2I’s Look?

BAGHDAD — I know there’s been a bunch of housekeeping going on here lately, and I’m sorry for that. But I’ve been bogged down with other stories and freelancing responsibilities and haven’t had much time to get out and see what’s going on in the last five days or so.
Be that as it may, I’m thinking of jazzing up the look of B2I. If anyone has a blog they think looks cool, and that could be adapted for this site’s look, I’m open for suggestions. I’m looking for clean lines, something that speaks of deserts and the Middle East, yet is modern and cool looking.
Yeah, I know. A tall order.
