The town of Birmingham, England has decided once and for all to ban all apostrophes from their street signs. The debate has pitted city officials against grammar geeks since the 1950s when the city began dropping apostrophes from street signs and sparked a protest from traditionalists. But last week the city council made the ban official once and for all. “I had to make a final decision on this,” said councilor Martin Mullaney. “We keep debating apostrophes in meetings and we have other things to do.” (Yahoo News)
