I've started reading a popular book on punctuation and the abysmal state of
its use, given to me by a friend of mine, "Eats, Shoots and Leaves" by Lynne
Truss. Encouraged by her book, people sent her examples of idiotic
punctuation. One--sent in by a Shakespearian actor--was a sign that said,
"Children Drive Slowly." The resulting brouhaha prompted the town to revise
the sign.

It now reads, "Children, Drive Slowly."
