Thank you, Dieter:

I apologize to all of those who tried to help and who couldn't get my code to work.
I now know three things: 1) stop working at midnight; 2) always provide the correct package
name (I meant arm(), not car(); and 3) when testing code make sure you do it in a new R window.

Dieter has kindly provided a clean version of my code below with a resolution to my plotting

Thank you,

"car" is by John Fox. You meant "arm".

Please check your code in a fresh window before you submit it. There were 
7 errors in your code that I almost gave up, and I am sure other people had 
the same problem.


fit.1<-glm(y~x, family=binomial(link="logit"))
sim.fit.1<-sim(fit.1, 1000)  
plotdt =sort(invlogit(sim.fit.1$beta[,1]+sim.fit.1$beta[,2]*mean(x)))
col = rep("black",length(plotdt))
col[1:24] = "red"
