As someone who has spent a lot of time working on contracts over the last couple months, I can appreciate the effort and attention to detail that is required to craft iron-clad agreement.  Unfortunately, even the best lawyers can sometimes craft a sloppy or vague clause, as Rogers Cable discovered recently when a misplaced comma forced it to shell out additional millions of dollars to a vendor.  Lawyers sometimes get a bad rep for exploiting such “technicalities”, but words and punctuation do matter.  And that’s reassuring to a grammar freak like me.
