Today, September 24, 2009, is Punctuation Day! Woo Hooo! If you are not already aware, Punctuation Day celebrates all that is fantastic about timely quotes, correctly placed commas, perfect parenthesis and all the other dashes and dots which make writing so enjoyable to some, yet so dreadful to others.
The one aspect of written language spell check can’t touch (getting close though), Punctuation Day was started in 2004 and is still going strong (as strong as an unknown holiday can go) today.
