I think that the semicolon is drastically underused. You probably don't see it that much unless you are a newspaper editor or some type of semicolon keyboard painter. So my question is: why is that? Is it just that people don't know how to use them? (to connect two independent clauses) Or ,maybe they just don't want to? Or, just forget about them entirely? It's not really that hard to forget it has it's own key on the keyboard; (yeah! I used one. Correctly I hope) you don't even have to push shift.

So the main point: my New Year's resolution is to use semicolons more. And, I thought that you, all my friends at AG, would like to join me in the movement to use the semicolon.

Try to use one in your response for extra points. (points are not real)
