‘Vigilante’ fixes badly punctuated shop signs

A self-styled “grammar vigilante” in Bristol, England is correcting shop signs in the dead of night, reports the Telegraph.

“Wielding an ‘apostrophiser’ – a broom handle laden with two sponges and a number of stickers – the man has corrected tens of missing and misplaced apostrophes on shop banners across Bristol over the past 13 years.”

As a former copy editor and proofreader, I sympathize with the impulse.
