Don't Tread on Punctuation

Taking a lovely stroll through Cambridge on Friday, I noticed a Gadsen flag waving in the wind.



Dont tread on me. I appreciate the sentiment, but I do not appreciate the lack of apostrophe.

In this case, the "Dont" is historically accurate. The original flag design shows the phrase without the apostrophe. Check out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gadsden_flag for more information.

Honestly, it's always bugged me, too :)
Cheers,
Allison

Thanks, Allison. Good to know that it's consistent. However, I am not above calling out historical punctuation errors. See entry on Goodnight Moon.

I have been to the camping trip and it was the most exciting time that I have got to spend there. I was literally wondering to go for the same trip once more but this time on somewhere else.
