Grab your Strunk and White and head down to Sturgis Hall at the Clinton School of Public Service at 11:30 a.m. Monday for a brown bag lunch discussion by Rep. Steve Harrelson and Parker Westbrook (belated correction to my earlier Freudian slip calling him Parker Dozier, a libel to Mr. Westbrook. Too much Whitewater on the brain.) on the great apostrophe debate. At Dozier’s behest, you may recall, Harrelson has won approval of a resolution saying that the correct possessive form of Arkansas is Arkansas’s, as indeed it is. The audience will be polled. Only correct votes should be counted.
