Education today… March 22, 2010 at 11:07 pm

Is it really old fashioned of me to be depressed at having found two grocer’s apostrophes in the abstract of a Harvard paper? Now admittedly it is only an undergraduate paper, but really, whatever our view of CDOs, we definitely should not tolerate CDO’s.

  1. If you want to blame someone for grocer’s apostrophes, blame microsoft. Their capitalization function does not like words with more than one capitalized letter followed by lowercase letters.

  2. It’s not old-fashioned, or at least it’s not any more old-fashioned than being distressed by shop assistants who can’t multiply by 5.
