[annotator-dev] Trouble setting up local storage

Do you see anything wrong with this post? If I look at the response (as
suggested by Shauna), this is what is returned by the loadFromSearch, but
nothing appears on the page itself.

Also worth noting - there is no "totals" or "rows" object returned by
search, but the docs say they should be expected.

[ { _id: 54fe3df73cd83186094364ad,
    quote: 'are two solu',
    uri: 'http://www.example.com/anno/anno.html',
    id: 54fdd3ce6c8417cd71810cf9,
    __v: 0,
    permissions: [],
    tags: [],
    ranges:
     [ { start: '/p[2]',
         startOffset: 22,
         end: '/p[2]',
         endOffset: 35,
         _id: 54fe3df73cd83186094364ae } ],
