I am not sure what is causing it, because the RSS is (mostly) valid, but 
it appears that for some reason Feed2JS is having issues with the 
current NY Times feed. I just tried creating the feed here, and I'm 
having a similar problem, so I don't think it is an issue on your end. 
Hopefully the feed2js people will fix it soon. It might be worth 
contacting them as I'd imagine the NY Times is one that a lot of feed2js 
users would like to display.

> - Our Chronicle of Higher Education feed, just below it, is set up

> Obviously I'm missing something.  Anyone have any ideas?
