Tomorrow is National Grammar Day. Watch your apostrophes.

I don't know who declared Friday, March 4, National Grammar Day, but I kind of like it.
I'm one of those people who cringe at the misplaced apostrophe, the use of "affect" for "effect" and other grammatical malpractice.
In honor of the day, let's all check our spelling and hang our commas by clauses with care. Also, check out these 10 grammar myths.

Hooray for the day! I absolutely agree. I cannot stand to see spelling and grammatical errors in advertising. Is it so hard for people to know the difference between your and you're? Two, to and too? Quit putting apostrophes in words to make them plural where they don't belong! For example: New Toyota Camry's for sale! NO NO NO. The correct word is Camrys. Can you tell it is a pet peeve with me? Learn, people, learn.
