The important things (like topics-links and county-links) are still "below the fold," and relatively unimportant things (like factual information which should probably be on other state pages) are above the fold. The purpose of the state page in NOT to divulge loads information, but rather to be a Table of Contents--a jumping-off point to the other pages--for the state. As a Table of Contents page for the state, there is something off-track if the Table of Contents page itself has a Table of Contents. The New York page shows an order of presentation that is closer to what we like to see on a state page. DiltsGD 17:32, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
