Miserable, budget-fussing, mission-statement-writing-only-my-only-mission-is-to-get-through-the-weeks-without-collapsing few days here lately, but I did find this wonderful sentence to cheer me, courtesy of Ruth Franklin and the 4 October New Yorker: “Becuase of an ambiguous comma in a document Greene signed on his deathbed, other scholars were forbidden to quote from unpublished material until Sherry’s project was complete.” And I’m worried about overlooking one conference or one mission-statement nuance? One comma will screw you. I can’t win. I’m going for coffee.
