It’s very simple — part 2

In response to a post Sunday, a reader sends this photo of the navigation display in a new Lexus hybrid.


This should be the possessive “its,” of course. The spelling “it’s” is the contraction for “it is.”

Nick, the reader who sends this photo, also sent it to the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar. Maybe Lexus will get the message for future models.
