In my column today I profile John Richards, who founded a group in England devoted to saving the apostrophe. It's illustrated with a lovely photo of the 84-year-old retired journalist sitting in a garden.
If I'd had the time, I would have liked to have snapped a photo of the apostrophe being misused. John's Web site features a gallery of misused or missing apostrophes. Surely there are plenty around here.
Seen a sign that says "Tire's for sale" or "Steves' Towing"? Snap a photo and send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Perhaps we can shame some sense into people.
