Oh, the comma-dy. Here, what has to be one of The New York Times’s best corrections of the of the year, courtesy of Andrew Sullivan:

An article in some editions on Monday about a New York City Transit employee’s deft use of the semicolon in a public service placard was less deft in its punctuation of the title of a book by Lynne Truss, who called the placard a “lovely example” of proper punctuation. The title of the book is “Eats, Shoots & Leaves” — not “Eats Shoots & Leaves.”

The kicker? “The subtitle of Ms. Truss’s book is ‘The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation.’”
