Punctuation Day!

For you on Punctuation Day: the most important punctuation marks you’ve probably never used.


Woman Abandoned; Baby on Facebook?

This morning, I woke up to this headline: “Woman Abandoned in Restroom as Baby Seeks Mom on Facebook.” Maybe it’s because I wasn’t yet fully awake, but I did NOT expect to see this photo accompanying the article. I immediately envisioned a woman being left in a bathroom (by whom or for what reason, I have no idea), while simultaneously, a remarkably precocious baby sought his or her mother via social media. I do hope for the best for the young woman whose plight is described in the article. But I implore those creating headlines: please, PLEASE punctuate so that your readers have some glimmer of an idea of what you’re writing about!
