Yes, thanks to MLA’s new and shockingly commonsensical 8th edition, students won’t need to scroll, red-eyed and feverish, mind-numbed, caffeine charged at 3 AM, up and down a psychotically long list of sources in search of the one that applies to their specific reference. Is the thing they’re citing a page on a website, an article in a web magazine, or a blog posting? If they’re using a YouTube video of a full episode of a TV show they found on a BlogSpot page, will their professor take the time to see if they cited that correctly? Will they make it to class or should they just burn this place to the ground and walk away instead of finishing their work cited page?

According to now official MLA policy, the answer is, “Who cares?”

MLA’s announcement produced a long sigh of relief. We never believed this day would come. Students still have to create work cited pages, but those pages are no longer out to get them. The tyranny is over. APA and Chicago, the gauntlet has been dropped. We’re looking at you.
