Grammar Lesson

Okay, I'll make this simple. There are only two times you should use an apostrophe:
1. To indicate possession. For example: "This is Hunter's toy."
2. For contractions. For example: "The Cavaliers aren't going to the Conference Finals"; as opposed to "The Cavaliers are not going to the Conference Finals."

Knowing this, the advertising flier I received yesterday touting "100's of bargains!!!" is just wrong, wrong, wrong.

Tell that to John O'Sullivan.

Okay, we'll let John and folks like Rusian Murav'ev keep their apostrophes, but that's it.
