Punctuation Matters

 
This bug appeared in a news report published by The Japan Times on Nov 21, 2014. View the original news report.
Bug Type:  Typo, Spelling, Grammar

A November 21 Japan Times headline reads "Japanese wives' secret savings triple husbands" - I guess this means money can buy love. Unless somebody just forgot to hang an apostrophe at the end of "husbands," then I guess it's just about the money.

Is it punctuation or polygamy? Read on at The Japan Times to find out.

It's a small error but I wished they would have noted the correction below the article because it now renders my comment on the website's discussion board sort of meaningless.
