I (heart) ;

I like semicolons. I like writers who know how to use them properly (and I don't mean for a winking emoticon).

So you can imagine my joy when I saw this New York Times article.

You can read some other people's thoughts about the article here, but, for me, this is almost as good as it gets.

Now, if I could only get the people at the airport to change the name of the lot from Long Term Parking to Long-Term Parking the world would be a better place.

Advice: Don't go to weddings. Or, if you do, don't read the program. The world will continue to be a mediocre place, grammatically speaking.

While we're on the subject of incorrect punctuation: A law office near my apartment used to have a sign on its door--a legit, professionally printed sign--that read, "Thank's for not smoking." It was there for years. Then one day, I noticed it was gone. In its place was a sign (equally legit) that told deliverymen where they should put "over-nite deliveries." I hope this law firm isn't the kind that specializes in contracts, wills, and the like. God only knows what accidental pandemonium their typos might bring about.

I'm a fan of the semicolon as well, and shocked by its frequent abuse. Thanks for the link!
