Quote of the day

"All they do is show you've been to college."

Kurt Vonnegut on the use of semi-colons, quoted in this BBC article about grammar. I fall firmly in the grammar Nazi camp, but then at least I've got the excuse of that being the day job. Hence how I managed to score nine out of ten in their fiendishly hard quiz - the question about the sibling was the only one devious enough to catch me out.
