Question Marks, redux
Apropos of anonymous guy’s long-ago query about the propriety of using a question mark mid-sentence, and the lively debate among the local geekdom it inspired, I thought I should point out this example that I came across recently:
The picture omits some of the context, but trust me, it’s there. This is from Bruce Weber’s excellent book As They See ‘Em: A Fan’s Travels in the Land of Umpires, which I wholeheartedly recommend and, once I finish it, on which I will undoubtedly have further comment. But for now chalk up one vote for the propriety of an occasional mid-sentence question mark.
