  1. I see our visiting ‘Associate Editor’ (#1 above) doesn’t know her its from her it’s.
    Some editor! 🙄

  2. Just for encouragement. This is not an entry, I stole this in a body from the Wiki definition of a sonnet, and it almost worked the way The Bard wrote it originally.

    Let me not to the apostrophe now blind (a)
    Admit impediments, right is not right (b)
    Which alters when it alterations find, (a)
    Or bends with the remover to remove. (b)
    O no, it is an ever fixèd mark (c)
    That looks on tempests and is never shaken; (d)
    It is the star to every scrivening clerk, (c)
    Whose worth’s unknown although his height be taken. (d)
    He’s not time’s fool, though Waterson’s and books (e)
    Within his bending sickle’s compass come, (f)
    He alters not with their new form and looks, (e)
    But bears it out despairing at the acts so dumb (f)

    If this be error and upon me proved, (g)
    I never writ, nor comma e’er removed. (g)
