Broken links in daily newsletter

Over the last few days I've noticed that there is a recurring problem with broken links in the newsletter. Specifically, I've noticed that the last news item links always seem to be broken. The cause of this is quite simple: the domain is being omitted from time to time. Without a domain, I'm just bounced to the top of the message when I click the faulty link.

Here is an excerpt from 2011-09-08:

You'll note that all the links to the stories have dropped the domain, making the link unusable.
