This is from a college professor who is combatting punctuation "myths" kids pick up in school. It's a nice article. I like the how the "commas go where you breath" myth is debunked. I like the witty comeback. I think I'll start using it.

Dead Poet Society quote and inspiration to use a larger vocabulary
My high school English teacher secretly let us watch, Dead Poets Society and it awakened every student in the room. This teacher was one of the best I've ever had, because he was genuinely passionate about teaching, learning and growing as a human. He didn't show us this movie to rebel against anyone, but yet to expand our minds and open us to the world could be.
