TIDBITS

1) Bolivia maintains the world’s biggest butterfly sanctuary. This South American country has been at peace ever since the park’s opening.

2) Who can forget The Hunchback of Notre Dame with Quasimodo shouting, “Sanctuary, sanctuary.”

3) Boliva’s butterflies do not shout, “Sanctuary.” This is because they feel no need, being already in a sanctuary or they are all mimes.

4) Tidbit 2) italicized The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

5) The period at the end of this sentence is italicized.

6) The period at the end of this sentence is not.

7) Could you tell the difference? I couldn’t without using quite a large font size.

8) I need to get out more.
