Now and then,

one finds an outrageous assertion by a member of St. Blog's Parish.
Michelle, mistress of this fairly new blog, considers the site you are now visiting to be a notable blog.

"... Superman-portrayer, Christopher Reeve, who became a quadraplegic after a riding accident."
"... click on their search feature, found in the upper-left quandrant of your screen under the title banner."
"Go the the London Daily Telegraph and click on their search feature ..."
"I dispute its use of a Christian holy day as leverage against the PLO and Palestinean Christians."

UPDATE: It didn't work!
The self-proclaimed freelance proofreader makes some strange claims in a post dated October 10.

"People are entitled to their just deserts." The sand in her eyes must have caused this boo-boo.
"Posts are titled." Click here, find the definitions of entitle, and learn something.
"[Give me an F!]" I have no idea what this is about, but at least she didn't ask for "UCK".
"Em-dashes are indicated by two consecutive hyphens ..."
Sorry, the fact that the standard computer keyboard lacks a dash does not make two consecutive hyphens
anything other than two hyphens. I don't critique typography here, so if it floats your boat, that's just wonderful.


UPDATE 2: Now we know that Alexandra has a sister.

I did forget another of Michelle's complaints.
In regards to a particular post of mine, she advocated placing a comma and a period inside quotation marks .
Since I quote written text on this site, any added punctuation belongs outside quotation marks.

It's a traditional error at St. Blog's Parish.

from Pro Multis, a week-old blog:

"Maybe its the fact that it is played without regard to a clock."
"He still calls me a "yellow-bellied poltroon" but at least its a step in the right direction."
"I've decided its time for a blog from the traditional Catholic perspective."
