The Apostrophe.

People seem to have the hardest time (inexplicably) understanding how to use the apostrophe. The example I continue to encounter is, "attorney's." This is possessive. However, people continue to write it this way when they intend to make "attorney" plural. Why anyone who has had an American elementary school education, public or private, should still believe that an apostrophe is always needed to make a word plural is quite beyond my understanding.

In case you are one of the perpetrators of this sad misuse of punctuation, here is a article to enlighten you on the use of the apostrophe: How to Use Apostrophes.
