What killed the semicolon? Paul Collins suggests that the telegraph didn't help, as it priced the semi-colon at $5 a use. But the Semi-Colon will always have a place in my writing: Collins notes, "The semicolon allows woozy clauses to lean on each other like drunks for support."
In any event, I'm just grateful this blog's semicolon label is getting some use; I'd hate to think I created it for naught.
