I feel dirty just having that name on my blog! Maybe I can reclaim it for the side of good, like U2 reclaimed Helter Skelter. Or something.

Maybe you can be king and queen together (ugh).

In case you didn't know, Dowd was heavily criticized a couple of years for abusing ellipses to make people look they were saying the opposite of what they really did say.

Yeah, I did some quick research and found out what was up. I do remember that story now. The ellipsis is a powerful weapon of the wordsmith and should only be used for good.

"Maybe you can be king and queen together"

You are a very bad man.

I personally like parentheses as they are the grammatical "hug" that I sometimes need when I read!

Maureen Dowd should be the queen of all redheads! Diva!
