Shamed by the Atlantic Wire on a Wednesday Afternoon / by Lars Garvey Laing-Peterson

After reading the Atlantic Wire's fantastic article "The Singular Beauty of the Em-Dash" on break at work, I was shamed into replacing all the instances of what Ben Yagoda calls "the poor man's em-dash" on this site with true, honest-to-God em-dashes. (If you catch any stragglers, let me know.) It's a wonderful, humorous read, and highly recommended—you know, if you like articles about punctuation.

(Thanks to Lauren for retweeting this fine article.)
