While not nearly as revolting as the first APOD widget, this one has its share of problems.

First, it doesn't update properly - I had to restart it twice to make it do so after the APOD page changed. Second, there's no handling of longer text (ie. with a scroll bar). If a scroll bar isn't feasible, just truncate the text and put '...more' with a link to the page.
