Two news stories, one big, one small, caught my attention today. First was the much-reported story of dismal big city public high school graduation rates. Then there was a follow-up to the story of Monday's big Chicago Cubs opening day dedicatiion of a huge statue of Ernie Banks.
It seems that an apostrophe is missing from the inscription: it reads, "Lets play two!" (no apostrophe). The inscription will be corrected. That will be relatively easy. How I wish the high school graduation rate could be fixed so easily.
Still, I'm not sure that graduation from high school means an understanding of apostrophes. I doubt that the inscription engraver was a dropout.
Perhaps only a former English prof would notice or care.
(Note: No computer fix yet, but I'm working on it. I'm still using my laptop, and it's too slow.)
