Subject: On ______ses
From http://www.sharpwriter.com/aaacontent/apostrophe.htm :Simple plural nouns do not take apostrophes. Special, joy, and grandma are pluralized with a plain s. Words that end in an s sound, like boss or buzz, get an es ending. That includes proper nouns. Mr. and Mrs. Withers are the Witherses (not the Withers'), and their dog is the Witherses' dog. Forms like Withers' are appearing more often in writing these days, but the above rule is the original.It can appear however you like in the OW (it's your name), but this is in fact the rule. Just let me know by noon Thursday.
Please feel free to forward and share with anyone concerned with my editing.
P.S. He still wants to have it revised to read "______s'," regardless of the fact that it's wrong.
