 Janet has it right.  People need to be less testy, aggrieved, and
defensive.  No one intends to misspell or misspeak or miswrrite.  That's why
they're called accidents.
> Now, if we can all agree that "cemetery" no A,  "grammar" has no E, and
just as "hers" and "his" have no apostrophe,  "its" has no apostrophe if
it's used as a possessive pronoun, as the wagon train had "its" own
