What Is Correct Punctuation?

Correct Punctuation is any system, method, scheme, or conspiracy of punctuation which either improves the intelligibility of a piece of writing, or at least does not decrease the intelligibility of that piece.

Incorrect punctuation makes the clear obscure, and the obscure obscurer.

Mine is the headline of the cub reporter with too much punctuation:

"Nut, bolts, and screws."
