Darn, I forgot to send out NPD cards again this year …

Yes, this Wednesday is National Punctuation Day (By the powers invested in this blog, I invite all my non-US visitors to participate). National Punctuation Day is

“A celebration of the lowly comma, correctly used quotes, and other proper uses of periods, semicolons, and the ever-mysterious ellipsis.”

The NPD site provides links to resources (books & online), punctuation products (shameless commerce), a punctuation playtime program, how to celebrate, the official recipe for NPD meatloaf (PDF), etc.

Contact Jeff Rubin for more information about punctuation
