Illya Harrell is a retired grocery store bag boy.

He wishes that he had never quit little league baseball because he is confident that he would have been the next Billy Jo Robidoux.

When not obsessing over what might have been, Illya enjoys watching baseball, thinking about baseball, reading baseball articles and books, writing baseball articles, playing fantasy league baseball, and replaying the 1986 baseball season on an obscure baseball board game.

Other hobbies include college football and drinking bubbly water.

    Cool, man. I'm glad to hear you liked my work. Two guidelines I've always used on semicolons: 1) On both sides of the semicolon, are there sentences/clauses that could work independently?; 2) Is the subject matter of those two clauses related?

    In my experience, the most clear examples of semicolon use allow you to change the order of the two clauses without losing the original meaning.

    Anyway, keep writing. You're good.

    How is Wilson's legacy working out for you... Or us?

    The Federal Reserve?

    Just saying.

    Be well!
