Today for SCOTUS: DOMA.
Today, the Supreme Court will take up the Defense Of Marriage Act (DOMA), the law signed by Bill Clinton that denied benefits and equal treatment to same-sex couples. This follows yesterday’s interesting, and at times heated, debate over Proposition 8 in the Hollingsworth case. I will be on MSNBC today discussing the case with NPR’s Here and Now at 12 and then Martin Bashir at 4 p.m.

You need to learn to use a semicolon.
It really is your friend. It’s not hard to use.
My rule is relatively easy. I won’t go into telling you about related independent clauses because then you will ask, “What’s an independent clause?”
If you have a longer sentence that includes:
And such and such…you, too, can use the semicolon.
You can use it for choppy sentences as long as they relate.
Got it? Good!
