This is a proposed streamlined version of categories.

Each post should have categories from each column so that it shows up on the page(s) that call it.

Each super-category (heading of the table)  has at least one associated page that aggregates posts as they’re made.

Featured is for specific audience pages (kids page, teen page); front is for the main landing page of the whole site.  The ordinals are for specific placement.
