A new book entitled OK: The Improbable Story of America’s Greatest Word, leads me to ask: Which do you prefer?




I’m an okay man, myself.

I like to avoid ambiguity when it comes to punctuation and those messy periods followed by apostrophes when a word needs to be pluralized or used in the past tense.

The book also leads me to wonder:

Can someone really fill the pages of a book with the story of an abbreviation?

I’ll have to find out.
