All new

Hello there. I'm heartened whenever I see ads these days using the adjective "all-new" with the hyphen as opposed to without it. Editors have had to wait years for this! And you know (of course!) never to let anyone tell you the hyphen is "graphically ugly," as did one musician when I asked him about the title of his album All America City. He said that, yes, I was correct, there should be a hyphen between "all" and "America" but that he thought it looked graphically ugly. Poor thing. The record is mighty fine, by the way. Motor Totemist Guild, the artist.

May try starting another blog on conspiracy for dummies.
