Poll Results 6

I'm glad that the majority of you felt the same way as I do about apostrophe abuse. Should we try to eradicate this problem one apostrophe at a time? I haven't had much success correcting misused apostrophes when I see them at businesses I frequent, so maybe that's a lost cause. Perhaps all we can do is try to keep our own apostrophes straight.

Please write a WD rant-column against the insertion of apostrophes into words that function as adjectives rather than possessive-case nouns. e.g., the finance committee's meeting.
