Success and the Semicolon

Jill Biden is a friend to the semicolon. Here's how she defined success in USA Today:

Q. You've taught in community colleges for 16 years. How do you define success?
A. Success is when my students have developed confidence and self-esteem that can help them achieve their goals. It's important that they can write a research paper, structure a logical argument in writing and determine when to use a comma versus a semicolon, but most important is that they emerge with a sense of confidence.

SPOGG smells a fan letter. (Note: Fan letters at this very moment smell a bit like feet. SPOGG probably spent too much time in the sun yesterday.)
