I just heard, through a friend so I haven’t verified it yet, that the MLA – the folks responsible for English language grammar – have changed the number of spaces after a period from two to one.
I did not know this.
I’ve always thought that it was funny that my Blackberry, when the space bar is tapped twice, automatically adds a period and then only skipped one space and not two, but didn’t delve too far into it. I just figured it was a text space saver. But now my mind is mildly blown! Even just now – just now – I still put two spaces after a period! I can’t stop!!!!!
Can anyone confirm this for me? Do I need to change my writing habits?

See you tomorrow!
