tally f-ed beyond all recognition. I see the sidebars but the main text column is white.

Tim: Huh, I thought that was because the lazy-ass hadn't written anything in about two weeks.

Actually, my first thought was that he had died. Liver failure, probably. Poor sap.

It had looked funny for a couple of days, but is now fixed.

One thing that's still screwy, though, is the blogroll. Right after my name (of all places) the links stop, though a number of names still appear sans hyperlinks, with odd spacing between them.

As of 9:22pm EST my screen shows the blogroll ending with Charles Dodgson's link, then about 3 lines' worth of blank space, then "David Fromkin" (not a link), 2 blank lines, then "Thomas L. Friedman" (not a link), and smiliarly through the rest of the author list. I'm not seeing ANY of the Amazon title links that should be there.

Here's what I've found in the source: There are a bunch of "close paragraph" </p> tags without any matching "open" tags in the Amazon links that follow the blogroll. I suspect they should be replaced with line breaks <br>. And perhaps the <br> and the </a> between the book title and author name need to be switched? Doing so would change existing:
<a href="amazon link"><i>BookTitle</i><br></a>Authorname</p>
<a href="amazon link"><i>BookTitle</i></a><br>Authorname<br>
BTW, I'm running Mozilla.
