Today we will discuss the colon. Briefly.
Extremely fond though I am of the semi-colon, I never seem to think to use a colon. George Bernard Shaw, that talented yet irritating man, used them to excess. He probably used up my share, and a lot of other people's.
I am not sure what a colon does that a full stop doesn't do better.
In the whole of Trav Zander, I use one colon. When it is published, there will be a small prize for the first person to locate it.
(Don't all rush at once, you'll trip over the ellipses).
