I appreciate the headline, “‘Free courts’ won’t seek to please anyone: CJP” on the front page of your paper dated December 11, Sunday. Being a professor at a local university, the other day, I was teaching the use of punctuation marks as part of research methodology to my PhD students. I told them that if apostrophe marks are put on both sides of a word the meaning becomes the opposite. Say, if we write he is as brave as a ‘lion’ that would mean he is not a lion. Can we consider the same rule when your paper put apostrophe marks on both sides of free courts (‘Free courts’)? Did you mean that free courts are not actually free courts?
