NEXT-DAY UPDATE: I have bubbles! My starter doesn't stink anymore. I might be ready to bake with it. However, I feel an obligation to disclose that I cheated. Yesterday I stopped feeding my starter and in the evening I added the tiniest pinch of dairy-free probiotics and about 6 grains of dry store-bought yeast. I thought it might speed along the process of balancing the bacteria and the yeast, which is necessary to get past stinky sour and onto good beer sour. Now I'm going to fold laundry while watching the sourdough episode of the Frugal Gourmet (In 3 parts on YouTube). In part 3 he says "Talk to the dough!... Grandma never needed to see a shrink ... Grandmas talked to their dough."
