I need a Typepad Template designer

I've been doing the 'blog' thing since 1999 using various platforms and hosts. But I've never quite mastered the vagrancies of CSS and MovableTyple MarkUp Language and now I don't have the time to. I have a moderately successful blog over at The Disney Blog, in such that I have a lot of regular readers and am considered something of an expert in my subject, but I fear its design is holding it back. In fact, I've been getting lots of reports that it doesn't work well in Safari or Mozilla. I need someone who can take the design to the next level while still being usable across many platforms. I'm willing to pay for this service, but my budget is small. So I'd like to see examples of design work before making up my mind.

Does anyone have a designer with experience working with advanced typepad templates who they would like to recommend?

Is a Fair Wage standard possible?

Call it a Fair Wage or Living Wage it doesn't matter. What is obvious is that the national minimum wage has remained $5.15 since 1997. What used to be a way out of poverty has now become the way into poverty.

I just read this great blog entry about why the wage should be raised. Florida's wage recently increased and we're still seeing 'now hiring' signs everywhere. The question is, how large an increase could the economy withstand and why must we stick with a one-tier minimum wage? Shouldn't there be some reward for those with a high school diploma? How about someone trying to support a family? Also shouldn't minimum wages be based on the living conditions of the area. If it costs $1000 to rent a one bedroom in one town and $500 in another, shouldn't the minimum be different?
