All my sites have stepped off a precipice today and in freefall, almost zero, wtf is going on?

Hey Ironside. Thought you'd been around long enough to realize that posting links to you site is not allowed here. That said. You're using an image only ad at the top of your home page which, when it goes into magazine mode, pretty much disappears. I'd recommend using the Text and Display ads option there. Try using a white background and border color with a blue similar to the intense blue in your header for the title and link color. I'd also position it over the body column of the page and move the left sidebar content along side it. Probably what that means is putting it in the body column instead of the header section the way it is. The wider things are, The less control you have over positioning with text ads. They'll align left but some will be ridiculously narrow. I think I'd try it below the helpful articles, faq, advice section first but it might also work well above.
You might also consider inlining your bottom ad just below the content in the body column (above the YouTube, Members, Photos sections).
In other words, put the ad more into the normal reading stream instead of spanning the whole page width.
Awful here, I am really really scared. How do you tell the kids you're screwed financially? Just awful. The harder I work, the worse it gets.

Until last year, Adsense went up every year. It is so scary having to face the loss of everything.
The trend, at least for me, is upwards; but slowly. June was about 5% ahead of May. May was about 10% ahead of April.
