There was once a time when grey was terribly fashionable.
Now people have realized that white looks nice
And a naive perusal of brutalist architecture and minimalist architecture will reveal that one is grey-- almost oppressively so, and the other is largely white and black.
But then, the Drudge report is white. The black font is harsh and there's so much of it that the stark beauty of minimalist white is never achieved-- so maybe it's brutal after all.
