Final semicolon post

Terry Teachout, of About Last Night, points out that “George Orwell’s ‘Coming Up for Air’ contains no semicolons–by design. He continues:

Needless to say, it’s not the same thing, but I started cutting back on semicolons a number of years ago, and by now I doubt I use more than a half-dozen a year.

Oh, Mr. Teachout, say it isn’t so.
