The signs of the times are missing apostrophes. The world needed a hero, but how would an editor with no off-switch answer the call? For Jeff Deck, the writing was literally on the wall: “NO TRESSPASSING.” In that moment, his greater purpose became clear.

If you’re like Jeff and Ben – and typos are like nails screeching down a chalkboard – you need to join the Great Typo Hunt!
