If you are subscribing to these musings through an RSS feed, I apologize for any garbled posts. If you see a sentence in the feed that makes no sense whatever, go ahead and click through to the blogspot page. There seems to be a technical glitch that arises whenever I type a typographer's apostrophe or quotation mark (the curly kind) instead of the straight typewriter apostrophe I just used earlier in this sentence or the straight typewriter "quotation mark." There's a technical solution, but I can't implement it until after the feed techies confirm that they see the problem and have logged the bug, er, feature.
Meanwhile, I’m testing one possible solution in this sentence. There’s nothing else happening here. “This is a test.” If this had been an actual emergency, you would have heard the president pronouncing nuclear correctly.
