Any time a politician gets “irked,” it’s probably a good time for a deep breath before speaking. Several reporters who attended a New Hampshire rally today for GOP presidential candidate and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie have taken away one soundbite from the event, and that is of Christie asking a young woman if he wants her to go down to New Jersey “with a mop” to assist with flooding in the state.

      That’s what I was taught growing up but these days, in academia as well as in the professional world, I’ve seen it used both ways. As I said, I prefer 2.

          No, I meant spacing after a sentence ends only.

          • TexSizzle

            I agree on that.
