It’s been my policy to view the internet not as an “information highway,” but as an electronic asylum filled with babbling loonies.”   —   Mike Royko

(Very true, Mike.  But, the diehard Unclerave readers consider this site a kind of oasis of sanity!  But, you know what bugs me?  The rule that places punctuation inside of the quotation marks, when the quoted words are part of another sentence.  What is up with that?  If the quoted words don’t normally have any punctutaion associated with them then why would the punctuation – that belongs to the sentence – be tucked into the quotation?  By my thinking, that makes absolutely no sense!  And, it just looks stupid.  But, those are the rules.  Just an English thing?  Do other languages handle this more logically?  Elect me Potentate of Punctuation and I’ll make that my very first order of change!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR  🙂
