Hey Mitch, maybe you're like me and using Firefox with Adblock which causes the space. If you use IE you'll see that the gaping white space is actually a chunk of Google ads. On a 23 inch monitor the narrowness of this site looks anorexic. I like the cleanness of the site, but I'd find a different way to place ads. Also, the search box is buried at the bottom of the page where people wont see it unless the scroll all the way down. Plus you can now integrate Google search on your site in a way that integrates more cleanly than what you're using.
