Re(11): 's = has

Thanks to John Tozer and Shirley for supplying some concrete examples to counter my argument. In my original post I said I would withdraw my objection if such examples were forthcoming, so henceforth I will regard the use as legitimate, though I won't employ it myself. It's interesting to note that others share my unease and that Richard has banned its use in the Times crossword. I did wonder if there had been a change of editorial policy since I haven't seen any examples in the Times for some time now.
