National Punctuation Day!

I'm a day late with this (story of my life) but I figured some of readers would still be interested and you can always calendar it for next year.  Here's the link to the official website which has exceeded its bandwidth at the moment (who knew this was such a popular holiday?) so I'll have to go with the National Punctuation Day entry from Wikipedia:

National Punctuation Day is a celebration of punctuation that occurs each year on September 24th in the United States of America. Founded by Jason Stanford in 2004, National Punctuation Day simply promotes the correct usage of punctuation. Rubin encourages appreciators of correct punctuation and spelling to send in pictures of errors spotted in everyday life.

Granted there's not much there to sink your teeth into. So until the official website comes back online (apparently there's a page with suggested activities to celebrate NPD - or try this) how about this article from last year's The New Yorker magazine.

Remember to take a snark mark to lunch (they don't get out much).
