Smileys and typography
- Smileys that have been used in electronic mail for the last twenty years or
so find their way into print in two cases: in articles about smileys or in
moronic youth press.

It's a pretty funny article. Actually he likes smileys when they're punctuation marks, but not when they're graphics. It's quite interesting.
