It’s a red letter day, people. Two great things happened on this day in history.
Firstly, 50 years ago today, the first edition of Strunk & White’s Elements of Style was published. It’s my bible, so I’m marking the occasion by omitting unnecessary words and being clear.
Secondly, 19 years ago today, I got my braces removed.
Please feel free to celebrate both of these anniversaries however you see fit. Speaking concisely, eating a carmel apple, etc.
