Roberts's and Miers's

by PG

I find myself in the odd position of agreeing with the Arkansas legislature about something: to wit, that when indicating a possessive for a proper singular noun ending with the letter "s," the proper punctuation is to add the same apostrophe and "s" that one would add to a proper singular noun that does not end with the letter "s." May Arkansas's non-binding resolution inspire a shift in style norms for all! (Via BTQ)
