punctuate this

February 12, 2007 at 1:10 pm (writing)

I have a lot of arguments with people who think punctuation isn’t important.  In my writing group tonight, we discussed how the following should be punctuated:

a woman without her man is nothing

Everyone else said it only needed a full stop.  

A woman without her man is nothing.

I laughed my head off and suggested the following:

A woman.  Without her, man is nothing.

Punctuation is important, people!
