A 'grave' Error

Chicago Tribune columnist Mary Smich, who wrote the famous "sunscreen" essay for college graduates, has another good one today, about the missing apostrophe in a statue outside Wrigley Field.

The 7-foot statue of Ernie Banks says "LETS PLAY TWO."

Many of the people Smich interviewed had no idea what was wrong with the inscription, though more than 80 percent of the people who've taken the survey view that apostrophe as "essential."

We take heart in that, at least.
