Quote Of The Day

The late Kurt Vonnegut on the semicolon:
If you really want to hurt your parents, and you don't have the nerve to be a homosexual, the least you can do is go into the arts. But do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites, standing for absolutely nothing. All they do is show you've been to college.

I respectfully disagree. The semicolon is without a doubt my favorite punctuation mark; I don't know what I'd do without it.
