I am indulging myself in another non-law post. It is about semicolons. Can anyone explain to me why a small article about semicolons is the most e-mailed New York Times article TWO DAYS running? I love semicolons; people who know me well know that I like grammar. My students sometimes critique me in my evaluations for being so “picky” about it. You’re welcome; I thought you came to college to learn, in part, how to write. I find grammar fun and funny; I find great humor in the blog of unnecessary quotation marks even if Mary Pattillo does not. This blog being one of the very few things we do not mutually find funny.
But seriously? Most e-mailed? Explain.
