Staying on message.. 



The Anchoress:
I join neo-neocon in appreciation of the semicolon, and I urge its increased usage! Between love and madness lies obsession; between commas and colons lie semicolons.

Perhaps our intentional use of the darling thing will help keep the synapses firing a bit longer and prevent us from sounding like Noam Chomsky in the Times article, who - asked to opine on the subject of semi’s - remarked (or, as the Times wrote it, “sniffed,”) “I suppose Bush would claim it’s the effect of No Child Left Behind.”

That remark, by the way, would be called a perfect non sequitur. Ask a man about the musty dust of elevated punctuation and he - fried by a strain of Bush Derangement Syndrome that creates U-turns out of cogent thought - cannot follow; all he can do is double-back.

I don't know who is the bigger meathead - Chomsky or his fawning acolyte atop Venezuela. Truly a pair made for each other.
Sorry I couldn't figure out a way to insert a semicolon in this entry.

Locker Room, that made me laugh out loud; I'm sorry, too.

Would this work?

One might ask: who is the bigger meathead, Chomsky or his fawning acolyte atop Venezuela; truly they a pair made for each other.
