Editorial: A Path We Should Walk Down, Toward Lincoln Street Beach
City Manager Wally Bobkiewicz suggested at the July 30 City Council meeting that negotiating a memorandum of understanding with Northwestern University about Lincoln Street Beach would be “difficult and not straightforward.” He cautioned that the University believes it owns the beach and questioned whether the City’s claiming ownership of the beach “is a path we need to walk down.”

The Case of the Missing '

I could adduce many famous examples of the confusion and despondency engendered by a missing or misplaced apostrophe. You can find them yourself at the hilariously named website “Apostrophe Catastrophes,” which is sub-titled “The Worlds’ Worst. Punctuation;”
