Apostrophe Catastrophe

I love this idea: Guerrilla forces adhering letters and removing apostrophes to conform to the basic standards of human communication. Grammar vigilantes, patrolling the night with cans of spray paint and stencils. Capitalization crusaders, if you will. Eh, that was a bit forced. Anyways, it reminds me of one of my favorite books (interview with the author here), one I came very close to buying for a friend's birthday. Ultimately, I decided against it because it's such a short read that it's better as a rental. If only there were some sort of shield law to protect this sort of vandalism or government endowment to correct the most grievous of errors.

What the hell happened to me being able to comment on your blag entries! Weeeeak.

Anyway, it took roughly ten years for me to come to accept that you just love to antagonize people. TEN YEARS. Oh god, we're so old. But yes, it's truly a talent!

There's something wrong with the comments? I wonder how long has this been going on? Hmm. It seems to be working now. I'll look into it later.
