Did you type "(" and ")", too?  I'll presume you didn't.

Suppose the file name is foo.  What happens when you do the following:

    emacs foo
    emacs -q foo
    emacs -q --no-site-file foo

If the problem is there with the first command but disappears with the
second command, there is an error in ~/.emacs.  If the problem
disappears with the third command, there is an error in site-start.el
or default.el.

If the second or third command line make the problem go away, I
suggest searching the file in question for the string "$Author" and to
comment out the line where the string is.  (By putting a ";" character
in the beginning of the line.)
