Blue + orange is a BAD combination.

Backgrounds that fade to pale blue make it harder to read white text at
the bottom of the boxes.

Sideways scrolling is Bad (although perhaps if it was HTML instead of an
image it might re-flow nicely, but I've seen far too many designs
similar to this which don't).

And what's with the huge but slightly blurry body text?

The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for
authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place
of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their
households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They
contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties
at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers.
