Possible speed issue culprit?

I've been complaining for months about how slowly my site loads. Today, after tearing out my hair again, reducing plugins and widgets, and trying every way I could imagine to speed things up, I decided to try one last thing. I turned off the footer option that shows the page's load-time in the footer.

Shazaaam! Could that really have been the issue? I swear, after dumping the browser cache for Firefox and Safari, and even dumping the cached files in the cache directory on the server created by WP-Cache, I reloaded the page, and it was much, much faster.

Am I going nuts here? Please go to http://www.larchmontgazette.com and tell me if it seems pretty quick. You won't have the measurement in the footer to go by anymore, of course. Just compare it to some other similarly "busy" sites, please. I hope this was the cause, because it's so easy to do without it, and so easy to put it back if necessary.
