Why didn't anybody do it before? is what Maria Kalman wanted to know. And if an illustrated Elements of Style is not enough, it's been set to music: opening tonight at the New York Public Library.
I hope they touch upon the "however" rule (one of my favorites).
UPDATE: How bloggy! Reader Terri-Lynn Sykes saw this info and urged a friend in NYC to go see the performance. That person did go and blogged a beautiful report, calling it "one of the most magical, hysterical, sincere, ironic, silly, glorious, hip, nerdy and just plain cool concerts ever performed."
