Happy National Punctuation Day.!?:;--"...
Apparently it's National Punctuation Day, guys. On this day, we give thanks for all the sentence structure-y things that our friends the comma, period, semicolon, colon, ellipsis and (my personal fave) the em dash do for us. Also, it's a grand day to mock others who use apostrophes and quotation marks incorrectly.
Over on Gawker.com, they've ranked each punctuation mark in order of quality and value. This editor, however, takes issue with number 3. The exclamation point is of high quality and value? Surely they jest.
