The D's new masthead: ugly

Not content with making its website less attractive (I blogged on this when the change occured some time ago), the The Dartmouth now features a new masthead in its print edition. I'll try to get a scan of it if I can. In the meantime, let me describe what's wrong about it. First of all, it employs a font that's too decorative. Worse, the graphic of Dartmouth Hall is completely obscured by the masthead's text. As a result, Dartmouth Hall's triangular pediment comes across like...a coathanger.
