Barry, you have to give other sites time to create links to it. Google's rankings are largely based on how many sites link to yours, and more importantly, the popularity of the sites that link to yours. I just created a link from my site to yours yesterday. As sites like mine link to yours, your ranking will go up. (It'll be tough to top "The Straight Dope" though.)
