I have suddenly run into a road block with something I have done a million times. When I use the following I wind up with a line break after the (before first link). I have looked at it a million times and need to give a break. Hope someone can tell me what stupid thing I've done.

<p><i>Robbie Morin, my good friend from Houston, sent along a recent video about the <a href="http://www.lostmystuff.net/"> Lost My Stuff Group </a>, and just perhaps the folks in
Carthage should watch it. A great example of what we are about, and why we shouldn't be treated like second class citizens.
Please watch <a href="http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?section=news/consumer&id=8285201"> THIS </a> and pass along....I love this group.</i></p>
