Thanks for the THWACK.

Pseudo-intentional. "Widget" created top menu links for some extra major 
recent categories: GigCity, Library, Meetings and Organization based on 
some keyword matches...  Which made the menu bigger than intended in that 

The proper fix using bootstrap is to not change the CSS, but to change the 
HTML in the template.  I changed:

      <div class="navbar-inner">
         <div class="container">

to be:

      <div class="navbar-inner">
         <div class="container-fluid">

and it works/looks much better with a lot of menu items.. if you have a 
wide browser window.

The menu will automatically shrink back as some articles "age".

And yeah.. this is the fun of slapping together a CMS for a website..
