A world without apostrophes is not a world for me


From the Times of London, “To Dump the Apostrophe Would be Apostasy”:

Of course, we all make spelling mistakes. But to abandon the attempt to get it right would be the biggest error. In one nonsensical proposal, the reformers suggest that we leave a space where an apostrophe should go. Wouldn’t you still have to know where the space belongs? These ideas leave a space where the education should be.

Not fewer, but more. And more colons, please!
