Maybe some of you have noticed an increased use of apostrophes in my posts and comments lately. It is all my niece's fault. She posted a link on her blog referring to a newspaper article about the elimination of apostrophes in a city which shall remain nameless here.
This wasn't the first post I've read about apostrophe abuse. Heck! Until recently the accusation could be made that I've abused them. Now I try to remember to use bold or italic for emphasis. I do my best to use apostrophes and quotation marks only in the prescribed manner. I am finding difficult so I may have to start attending Apostrophes Anonymous meetings.
