That's because with no arguments, S.split() delimits by any chunk of
whitespace, and a newline qualifies:

>>> "The quick brown fox did something really gross.\n".split()
['The', 'quick', 'brown', 'fox', 'did', 'something', 'really', 'gross.']

So your .split operation is removing the newline that exists at the end
of every line that's bein read.  If you want to put it back in, just do
it manually with something like:

	output.write(' '.join(remove) + '\n')
