Sorry to go away for so long. Learning Flash and Final Cut Express at Mr. Rewrite's advanced age has proven extremely taxing, and feeding content to his infernal spin-off blogs is more work than he'd expected.
Anyway, today's post is an excuse to create another animated GIF. Here's the lesson: The Arizona State Capitol is located in the state capital of Phoenix.
Capitol applies to the building where a state legislature or Congress meets.
Capital applies to a state's capital city or the nation's capital, Washington, D.C. It also applies to wealth, specifically wealth used to create more wealth, and is an adjective meaning financial capital or premier (e.g. a capital idea).
Mr. Rewrite is certain there are plenty of media mistakes to illustrate this -- he sees them often -- but he's tired from this crash software lesson and eager to watch tonight's premiere of "Mad Men."
