Good news for everyone

The semicolon may be the most difficult punctuation mark in the Norwegian language. In English prose, it's "a pretentious anachronism", according to an opinion cited in the New York Times. But NY subway driver Neil Neches knows his ABC. The Times treats its grammar-conscious readers to a news gem under the utterly geeky headline "Celebrating the Semicolon in a Most Unlikely Location".

A proper click winner, as the journos in Norway would say.
