I disagree with this piece. I really do. Yes, really. It argues that putting two spaces after a period is wrong. I disagree. It is hard enough to read student papers, for instance, when they no longer use commas, but not having sentences that clearly end. And a new one begins. But if we only use one space, then the sentences will seem to run together. Right. So, let me ask my readers: do you prefer one space? Or two? I will not change, but I will know whether I should feel shame. Or not.
