Grail commented <<But then, I was told - by a woman from Alabama, so anyone who wants to make Deep South jokes can have a field day now - that American English writers place punctuation marks outside of the quotation marks (Let's go to the beach", Jane suggested).>>

That makes me cringe with shame for my home state! Whoever the woman was,
she does not speak for all of us who share Alabama as our home state. In
fact, this sort of punctuation error is a major pet peeve of mine.

I'm sorry, I have to go listen to Jimmy Buffet's "Stars Fell on Alabama"
