Correct punctuation wins!

The punctuating public in San Jose is incensed over a new plaque at Stanford that says "the Stanford's purchased 'the farm' from the Gordon's in 1876."

The Mercury News story says the wording is "historically accurate," and I'm not sure what that means. (Is the plaque quoting something? Or is the reporter just saying that the Stanfords did indeed purchase land from the Gordons? It's not clear.)

In any case, the uproar persuaded Stanford to change the plaque.
