Thanks, it was opening the Mt. Lion executable, 
which is out there on my hard drive.

I fixed that but it still has the same problem. I 
can create and typeset a doc, but when I quit the 
app then restart it, my .tex file is empty.

If this is not a well-known or standard issue, 
that's probably good news. I'll try deleting 
every LaTeX-related file off my system and 
reinstalling everything.

If any other ideas, please let me know.
