Nested if inside each (Handlebars template in Express app)

This morning I figured I’d finally take a look at Handlebars by throwing together a quick Express app. I’m enjoying it so far (and I think I prefer Handlebars to Jade) but I have a problem.

I’m trying to debug my node js project on Mac. It works very well in “Launch” mode but not in “Attach” mode.
