What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Create a narrative or event.
2. In the timestamp field, enter a time without an am/pm designation
3. Look at your living story page.  Everything will fail

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
A malformed timestamp should generate an error in the compose page rather 
than getting accepted and then totally breaking the page.

Thanks for isolating this! In a combination of curiosity/irritation/love-of-simplicity: why is it that there is a 
separate, required, time field?

There's actually already another bug filed about making the timestamp optional, which 
we plan to fix shortly.

The basic reason is: we use the date/time to sort the events in your living story 
page.  We were assuming that you'd always want to put a time down, but it seems that 
many people want to omit it, so we'll default that to 12:00 AM and hide it.
