 Hi dd32,

 The back story is that the_date will not acho if you have two or more
 posts posted in the same date. The function will echo the date in the
 first post of that date and will leave blank the other ones, which is
 pretty annoying and not an expected behavior of the_date().

 Here is where is_new_date() comes along and if you want to leave blank the
 date of the other posts of the dame date, than just add this: if
 (is_new_day()) the_date();

 The more important part is that if this function gets fixed, no theme will
 break for sure - the function will only fill the blank dates of the posts
 of the same date.

 We talked this with Otto in the wp-hackers mailing list and he suggested
 to make a ticked for this.
