Re: “Another bad Apple in the bunch”, Have Your Say, yesterday.

Lest my friends and my former university colleagues think I am losing my grip on English language literacy in my dotage, I would like to point out that I still know the difference between “your” and “you’re”.

I checked back with my email to you and this is what I wrote: “... get an email telling you to enjoy your first month’s free trial”.

I can only put attribute the printed version, “… get an email to enjoy you’re first month’s free trial”, to an aberrant subeditorial gremlin.
