Bonus Post: A LUE Rant
I grew up in the good old days. Get that? The. Good. Old. Days.
What were the good old days you might ask?
The days when you put TWO SPACES between sentences when you typed them
on a typewriter on a word processor.
Sometime in the last year, Blogger has decided to go all one-space on me. Which is fine. Except it is not fine because I keep getting these off-kilter lines in my published posts. (Do you see that?) And because it is one of about, oh let's say, TWO things that I am obssessive about, I have to go back and fix them and then republish. I have to.
Arghhh!!! How am I supposed to work against years and years of punctuation indoctrination?
What's next? no capitals at the beginning of sentences? anything goes sentence enders; are we to become an ee cummings world/
The madness has got to stop.
