To all those who suggested changing \\<NL><NL> to \\<NL> it doesn't and
really cannot work. I got some mysterious error messages (mostly owing to
\\ followed by a blank line inside xy-pic constructions, although one I
couldn't track down). But I fixed that and compiled the document. The
trouble is that now the entire article (or, to be precise, each chapter)
is now a single paragraph and set that way. Thus there are no \parskip
and no \parindent and, while you could omit either one, you cannot omit
both and have a readable document.
Thanks for trying.
The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in
moral philosophy--the search for a superior moral justification
for selfishness. --J.K. Galbraith
