Off topic: Single quotes, Sonnet 18 many ways, birds’ whereabouts, OK Go video

As the punctuation world turns, it’s a free-for-all: The rise of single quotes vs. double quotes. From Spenserian to limerick — “I’ll totally write you a poem” — alternate forms for Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18. Universal question: Where do birds go when it rains? To the moon, perhaps. (Not.) And another visual treat from OK Go, its music video for “I Won’t Let You Down.”
