Punctuation battle stations

Grab your Strunk and White and head down to Sturgis Hall at the Clinton School of Public Service at 11:30 a.m. Monday for a brown bag lunch discussion by Rep. Steve Harrelson and Parker Westbrook (belated correction to my earlier Freudian slip calling him Parker Dozier, a libel to Mr. Westbrook. Too much Whitewater on the brain.) on the great apostrophe debate. At Dozier's behest, you may recall, Harrelson has won approval of a resolution saying that the correct possessive form of Arkansas is Arkansas's, as indeed it is. The audience will be polled. Only correct votes should be counted.

    Many Medicaid beneficiaries work full time — or more — but only a portion of the year, the lead author of the study noted. Among the group of recipients who aren't exempt but are currently working, he said, "we found they’re averaging about 35 hours per week. So it’s not that they’re opting to not work ... . It’s more a matter of whether they have consistent work or not.”
