Living Under Communist Rule

The city where I live is sometimes referred to as "The People's Republic of Cambridge." Back in the '90s, someone went so far as to post a sign welcoming people to the PRC. The sign was taken down, but its image lives on in a bar on Mass Ave.

"Do you notice anything interesting about that sign?" I asked one of the friends I was with.

"Yeah, it's missing an apostrophe!" he answered.

I tried to explain it to the bartender and told him about Apostrophe Catastrophes, but he said he had never read a blog before. Maybe, as an employee of a communist-themed bar, he is forbidden from reading non-government supplied news.
