We can do that with the current site, though it might be a big clunky.
If someone wants to be the alpha user for such let me know.

We should sit down and I can show you what I've figured out.
I've been learning a number of CMS's and while I can't say plone is the most
straightforward of all the ones I've used, it is conceptually similar.
Basically with all CMS's articles can be in many states private,
If we can get some of Donna's time, as offered, for a bit of a brain dump
from her to me, and potentially upgrade to latest plone, we can take care of
the issues.
Barring that,  if we're not stuck on using python, I'm learing Joomla at the
moment, which seems much easier to deal with.
