Punctuation - it’s not just for emoticons any more

Do you know your brackets from your ellipses? For those of you who pride yourself on your punctuation, and for those who need a refresher course, have I got a holiday for you: National Punctuation Day, which is September 24! And what gives a national holiday more cachet than having an official meatloaf? [Full disclosure: this really doesn’t look like a punctuation mark to me, but rather something I would prefer not to think about.]

The Web site says, “NPD is celebrated in schools and businesses throughout the world with activities, games, programs, and contests. It has inspired people to pay attention not only to their p’s and q’s, but also their commas, semicolons, and ellipses. NPD reminds us of the importance of proper punctuation for communicating clearly at home, school, or at work.”
