Why does my CSS inheritence get ignored?

On this page, the "wall" that is asking for an optin should be 50em tall, and the text box should be 50% with a margin of 25% when teh screen size is 1024px wide - 1280px wide. (Media query starts at line 243 on this style sheet).

Why is the media query getting ignored? (or... where's my typo?)

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

@1024 wall is 50em high and input is 50% wide with a 25% gutter.
