Thank you, Carmen Nobel, for your informative article about the lowercase L epidemic in the Online Finds section of The Boston Globe today!
William Levin has a peeve, and it is this: Sometimes, when people create handwritten signs, they choose to capitalize every letter except the letter "L." It bugged him as a child, when he saw a sign for a "YARD SAlE." It bugged him as a college freshman, when his dorm mates made T-shirts advertising themselves as residents of "STONE HAll." It bugged him as an adult, and he decided to blog about it.

Read the rest of the article.

You've got to be fucking kidding. It clearly says "The Boston Globe." I was starting to agree with your hatred of this phenomenon but now you're just being fucking paranoid. Jesus Christ.

Naw, you missed it, Robot Chicken — they wrote an article about lowercase L in the Boston Globe.
