grammar quiz

I just saw this text on a banner-style meme:

Julian Assange is not a journalist, he's an anarchist.

Correct the comma splice. I can think of at least two ways.

Semi-colon would be my first instinct. Or an em dash.

Still, when a comrade breaks a limb out on the field of battle and all you have are commas, a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.

John from Daejeon said...

There should be a period after journalist or an exclamation point and then another after anarchist.

I guess that depends on how shouty you're feeling.
