For anyone who's run into the strangeness around the_date() before its
worth noting that in 3.0 it's logic is broken into two functions:
get_the_date() can be used in the loop to just get the damn date,
while the_date() continues to follow the is_new_day() logic and only
shows once on the first post for that day.

So if you wanted to show the date on every post using the standard
formatting from the Settings > General page (I know, its crazy right?)
you can use

 echo get_the_date()
