You seem to be using the pstricks package with pdfTeX. That can't  
work, with pdfTeX you need to use derivative versions of pstricks,  
designed to work with the PDF format.

The easiest fix: use TeX + dvips + GhostScript instead of pdfTeX. In  
case you're using TeXShop, this is done by selecting TeX +  
GhostScript in Prefs/Typeset, or TeX + GhostScript in the Typeset menu.
