It seems that a battle is raging over in the UK.  Some time back an emergency vehicle went to the wrong address because they didn't realize that the name had an apostrophe in it and went to the one that didn't.  In the spirit of the age, the local authorities subsequently banned the punctuation mark from its future street signs.  However there are people who care deeply about such things and a rear guard action was mounted in the dead of night with black marker pens.  I'm grateful to my friend Van for sending me the information.  The article also said that apostrophes have been absent from US signs for a long time, which I didn't know.  You can read the entire article here
