Twenty Fourteen: small fonts in sidebar are hard to read

The tiny grey fonts in the left sidebar are very hard to read on Windows, maybe due to font smoothing. See the attached screenshot.

Win 7, Opera 12 (I know, but it is the only browser with good keyboard accessibility)

  • Keywords has-patch added; needs-patch removed

Although it is true that we can add some paragraphs through widgets, the main purpose of the narrow sidebar is a kind of utility sidebar, not so much to "read" stuff.

Having said that, I attached a patch bumps up the font size slightly in the sidebar and gives more contrast against the black background color for better legibility.
