You should see the title of the topic you clicked on. Then the handouts will show up or you will see a list of titles of the handouts. If you see the list of titles, just click on one of the titles and then click "open" and you should see the handout. Right now a couple of handout sites are having technical problems, but they should be fixed by later today. If you are still having problems please let us know and tell us which handout you are interested in reading and we will try to assist you. Thanks for visiting the blog.
