New York Daily News headline uses IT’S where ITS should be.

An online headline for New York Daily News caught my eye on Tuesday.  Here it is:

Whoops!  IT'S with an apostrophe is always the contraction of IT + IS or IT + HAS.  The copy editor should have corrected to ITS without the apostrophe to show that the 'wealthy economy' belongs to the U.S. (Or so we continue to hope!)  This headline should read as follows:

Fitch Ratings: U. S. and its 'wealthy economy' still AAA.

FOOTNOTE: To the credit of New York Daily News, when I searched for this article again this morning, the headline had been corrected.

My sincere thanks to Michelle Baker for her two guest posts last week, which I'm sure you enjoyed.
