Didn't You People Get the Memo? A Short Rant on Punctuation Order

If I have to edit one more article where the writer puts a close quotation mark BEFORE a period, I will find one of those marshmallow goop guns from Bugsy Malone and do some serious mayhem.

Dammit, Americans ALWAYS put a period BEFORE the close quote mark. Brits do whatever Brits do, and I don't care. There are reasons we fought two wars with those mugs.

You did WHAT to your sentence, mister?
