The Newspaper of Record cannot deal with last names that have spaces in them. Of course, it's not them; it's the computer people. Did anyone write a viciously satirical sf story in which many futuristic systems would replace the simple apostrophe with one of a dozen bits of gibberish that look like the ways comic strips represented Bad Words?

Thanx to Making Light.
