That’s right; it’s that time of year again: National Punctuation Day. Do you think an ellipsis is when the moon moves in front of the sun or that the only use for a colon is, well, a private matter? Then you need an in-service with Jeff Rubin.
I’ll be the first to admit that I am not always the best practitioner of the stated rules, but that is no excuse to go soft on them. Anyone who has the audacity to write anything without aid of credentials or all things professional and legitimate and make it public (i.e. blog) should at least be familiar with the holiday which falls on September 24. Personally, I think the exclamation point is way over used. It appears Jeff might agree.
For those of you who think this Calvinist-Amillenial-Two-Kingdom-Confessionally-Reformed-Christian-Secularist is too under-realized in his eschatology as evidenced in his disdain for all forms and expressions of activism, sacred and secular, over more institutional means (deep breath), here is my idea of a better way to wag fingers in faces. If I must promote a cause to prove that I don’t ignore the third use of the law, here you go. Quit calling me antinomian.
If nothing else, you must admit, National Punctuation Day sure beats National Ten Commandments Day.
