I also notice I have a /usr/bin/lpr-cups.  What if it called that instead?

Usually all I get is a blank page run out by the printer.  Each time I 
try to print, I get the number of pages for the number of times I try to 
print, all blank.  Example:  print once, get one blank sheet, print 
again, two blank sheets, etc.  Very odd behavior actually.
