Walking on Park Ave. yesterday, my friend was greatly perturbed by the street cleaning sign saying “MONDAY’S STREET CLEANING.”
She said the apostrophe is grammatically incorrect. I could see it being correct if one were to say, “Monday’s street cleaning means you can’t park here.” But she insisted the signs were messed up.
Clearly, there’s also debate over the apostrophe at City Hall. Within one block, we came upon signs written with and without the apostrophe. Which is correct?

– Assemblyman David Gantt faces what could be a formidable primary challenge from Rochester school board member Jose Cruz, who told the Democrat and Chronicle:
“This is the time,” Cruz said, speaking in the measured cadence that has defined his political career. “(Gantt) has served his 30 years. He’s done what he’s done. But I think this district deserves somebody who understands the issues, somebody who can articulate those issues, somebody who can have a conversation with somebody without flying off the handle and telling them to go screw themselves.”
– Zip lines are becoming very popular across the U.S. How about one over the Genesee River gorge?
– Everyone is saying “vagina” on TV these days. (Except TV newscasters.)
