, so I could finally get the definitive word on a grammar question I've had since writing application essays. I stumbled upon Bartleby.com
, and found it to be a really, really cool website. They have a ton of classics published online that are all free. Encyclopedias, Dictionarys, the World Factbook, Poe, Shakespeare, Whitman, etc. Anyway, check it out, it's very cool.

It's Les's cup. - Correct; It's Les' cup. - Incorrect
There is an exception, though, for historical figures:
It's Achilles' cup. - Correct; It's Achilles's cup. - Incorrect
That concludes the grammar lesson for today. ;)
