More information, now that I'm home again and have time to dig into 
this.  I went back into the yum history and found the update in 
question.  It included this line in the list of updates:

Install kernel-PAE-3.1.2-1.fc16.i686

At the bottom was this:

Scriptlet output:
    1 grubby fatal error: unable to find a suitable template
    2 grubby fatal error: unable to find a suitable template
    3 grubby: doing this would leave no kernel entries. Not writing out 
new config.

I'm not sure what went wrong, or where, but I don't think that 
uninstalling and reinstalling that kernel will make any difference, at 
least until the grubby issue is corrected.
