Asleep at the switch?

Letter from Peter Bulkeley

Colorado Central – May 2005 – Colorado Central Magazine

Dear Ed,

Were you asleep at the editing switch for the April issue? Does George Sibley know the difference between the possessive form of it and the contraction for it is? The last line of the first column on page 31 reads “And to it’s somewhat surprised dismay …” I’m pretty sure he meant its not it is.

At least no author tried to make a noun plural by adding ‘s as happens with alarming frequency in the High Timber Times and to a much lesser extent, the Fairplay Flume.
