Catastrophe News Network

Another day, another apostrophe catastrophe from my friend Merry. This time it's from CNN.com.


If you look closely at the middle of this screenshot (click to enlarge it), you'll see that the writer added an 's to the end of Obama. "Obama's slams McCain..." doesn't make much sense.

Thanks again, Merry! Check out her other submissions here.

Becky, you are my East Coast Inspiration. Wife Peggy and I started a little blog just a few weeks ago, and one category is "Apostrophe Patrol." I will do a post about your great blog. Maybe we can find a West Coast volunteer and make this a national movement. See you at www.highstreetbeat.com.
Regards, John and Peggy.

Yeah... I really think the writers need to lay off the sauce before they start writing..

SAD SAD SAD!
