A – The Period is Over-Rated

I have decided English teachers and majors should just accept that the period is outdated.  Seriously.  Heather and I have read the top six books of the 20th century and three, yes count them, three, trois, tres… 1, 2, 3 of the books do not use the period.  Run-on sentences GALORE!!  Stream of consciencness = babble.  So I ask, why do we even need the period?  Seems that the critics, editors and publishers set the precedent in the 1930’s.  The period is passe, my friends.

  1. Love the cartoon! Every time we read a stream of consciousness piece of writing I just want to take out my red pen and start adding some punctuation!!
