The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. No price is too high for the privilege of owning yourself. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

    I feel better about punctuation because punctuation assists comprehension.

    For example: “Bertie was not a candidate for Stendhal Syndrome. He was thrilled to be in Paris, and he stuck his nose to the window of the bus and gazed, open-mouthed, at the streets of the elegant city.” (A. McCall-Smith).

    I am trying to improve, and I’m observing corrections with gratitude.

    Possible question quite widespread among recent school leavers: “What’s punctuation?” (99% through no fault of their own – boo! hiss! to scores (maybe hundreds) of education ministers, hundreds (maybe thousands) of edufacademics, thousands (maybe tens of thousands) of teachers (but with maybe a clear majority being truly able to claim “We’re victims too, y’know!”).

    Surely this is close to mass child abuse, and constitutes systemic professional dereliction of duty!

    (Background mutter from a very model of a modern main-herd academic: “What is ‘duty’?”)

    So much at stake for want of ancillary marks, and spots of punctuation!
