What Happened to the Comma?

by Bitner (bio)

Something happened to the comma. Incomplete sentences are commonplace in nearly all forms of writing now. The poor comma can't buy an appearance. Or maybe that tiny little grammatical tool - after a couple down years - began taking performance enhancing drugs and now looks like a period.

I. Don't. Know.

But I do know that the comma is being used less frequently and the period is all over the place. All. Over. The. Place.

Best. Punctuation. Ever.

Which brings up a second grammatical quandary: the exclamation point is over the hill. Unless it's paired with the word 'right' and a question mark, right?!

I know. Right?!
