Overlay style on Wells Fargo Banking Page

What do you think?
Does Wells Fargo really need a second, different-looking link style for something that has a special hover state like this one, they just added this to their page.

Evidently no one knows what "current posted balance means"... but I think having another link style is just confusing and unnecessary.

Recently, my great friend, Jendar Morales decided to move back to Salt Lake with the purpose of creating what will be called The Art Haus SLC. The purpose of this space will be to bring some of what museums magically do and bring to a community. With a three-part focus on fostering local art talent, bridging cultural and social divides and education outreach programs — I hope they will bring something very special to the Salt Lake Area.

Let me know what you think - and see this and other cool things on The Designer Co-op - another blog I just started writing for.

This would make Tufte's skin crawl.

Firstly, I think that this is a very interesting topic – Should the activities and the validity of Invisible Children a "not-for-profit" organization, come into question?
I liked this article in response to the hype about the group's upcoming documentary release Kony 2012. 
Here is the response from Invisible Children -
I was reading along, and came upon this infographic, which convinced me, after a general study of tufte's work, that this organization is totally bogus – tell me if you agree.

If we are feeling distracted, we should pay attention to that distraction. It may be telling us that there is something better elsewhere, something more deserving of our attention. Or it may be telling us we are on the wrong path, just when we thought we were zooming in to that perfect conclusion of a paragraph or a project. Or it may be telling us we need better tools, that the set-up we have is not fully appreciating the particularities and peccadilloes of our own work life and demands. Or it may be telling us that we need better partners, or a better method, someone or something to help us over the hurdle. Or it may just be telling us we are working too hard and we need to put down what we are doing and go outside for a walk, or stop for a cup of tea, or go for a run, or maybe just check out Facebook for a while. Distraction is our friend because it reminds us that we are fully human, not just workers, and that our lives are complex and, trying to shut out the complexity, may in fact turn out to be the least productive way to lead a life."
