Did You Know..?

This morning in a read of economist, Paul Krugman @NYT, I came upon a colon immediately followed by a capital letter i.e. He.

Now in English usage the capital is seldom called for, but in American usage it is preferred.

Which raises issue when what follows a colon is an incomplete sentence. Having begun with a capital a complete sentence is anticipated et cetera.

It could be said, too, that a full stop(period) replace the colon in this case.
