Same issue with this edit as over on Talk:Entertainment. Maybe sidebars aren't the way to go, but lets try to keep a common theme for all the pages linking out of the Navigation toolbar.

-I think this new set up is nice for the opening to the "Living Guide Pages". It clearly shows you your options and once you have chosen a specific area to visit the sidebars return. I think the new set up actually clarifies users options. It might not be perfect but I found it easier to navigate after visiting the initial "Living Guide Pages." After leaving the main page of say Entertainment the sidebar then served as the all purpose back button to any of the entertainment sections.

-Agreed, this is a good format. Nice change
