So, I was at Eric “Ptomaine” Hedlund’s blog earlier today. I go there now and again, despite the fact he posts in spurts and then doesn’t post for over a year. If he posted regularly, you can be sure he’d be in the blog link section on your right. You may remember Eric from several other mentions (1 and 2) in this blog. I only mention Eric because he had this fantastic link in his blog and I feel the need to thank him for reminding me about it. As everyone knows, I despise people who don’t know the difference between it’s and its, especially when they should know better. It’s a regular peeve of mine, and I rant about it endlessly on my website and in posts around the ‘net. I am not above writing to an editor of a publication to complain. It’s quite frustrating to see the increasing flocks of ignorant people.

So what did Eric post that excited me so much? A link, a long forgotten one. In specific, it’s a link to The Apostrophe Protection Society. Yes, it’s a real link! The site is not pretty to look at, but it’s rather well organized and very informative. I encourage you to go there. If you’re a lover of the book Eats, Shoots, and Leaves, you will love this site. Grammar and punctuation are highly underrated.
