Bands and punctuation

Some of what’s here is diacritics, not punctuation. But it would be pedantic to point that out: A Brief Guide to Band Name Punctuation.

Dear English Prof,

Is it pedantic to ask why you wrote pendantic instead of pedantic?

Typo, now corrected. Thank you!

Typo? Ha--dignity maintained!

And I’m owning my mistake: there’s now a record of it here. As my great friend Aldo Carrasco wrote after misspelling a word when inscribing a book, “In true Eliot-like, ‘Four-Quartetish’ self-effacement, I doctor not my mistake; but, rather, share it.”

Well put. Thanks for sharing! And for not doctoring (despite your Doctor status).
