Awesome!  Congrats, Joe!  

Now, how can we archive this problem/solution so that others won't have to go through the same rigmarole in the future?!

  Got it! Thanks, everyone!

  Gerlando, Mike, Austin, Brian, Mark, Matt, Jim (I'm sure I'm forgetting

  What a great community.  You folks are terrific.

  My hosting company uses internal DNS servers, so I added an entry there
  pointing to the external ip address, and also changed the /etc/hosts file on
  the server (which was pointing to the internal ip address, not the
  external). Not sure which of those was the solution, but I don't think
  either of them does any harm, so I did both.

  And now feedwordpress syndicates those feeds just fine, wget works,

  Thanks again--this was a real challenge to someone who is a linux sysadmin
  only in the most illusory sense. If you guys hadn't pointed me in the right
  direction I might never have gotten this fixed.
