Irrelevant Vent

OK, I just have to vent for a minute. When I took typing in summer school back in the dark ages (manual typewriter!), we were trained to insert two spaces after a period. Now in the internet-era with line wrapping, two spaces is considered obsolete. Really! Just google “two spaces after period” and you get a bunch of hits. The first one from the Cult of Pedagogy made me bust out laughing. Slate Magazine and even the Chicago Manual of Style get into the conversation. I guess I’m dating myself. I’m trying, but I know these will slip in from time to time. One space just looks wrong! Please bear with me! ;-)
