Farhad Manjoo writing in Slate gave a long and convincing argument to free us from those pesky extra spaces. I'm sorry I haven't known about this all these years. I could have saved myself untold hours at the keyboard. Since I learned to type many years ago and have continued all the habits I acquired then to this very day, it may take me a while to convert to the new system. I have reviewed this page for every period and removed all the extra spaces I found.
I wish all the things I need to change in my lifestyle and habits were as easy to accomplish as the "two-spaces after a period" one is.
