Incensed by a “no tresspassing” sign, Jeff Deck launched a cross-country trip to right grammatical wrongs.
He enlisted a friend, Benjamin D. Herson, and together they got to work erasing errant quotation marks, rectifying misspellings and cutting unnecessary possessive apostrophes.
The Great Typo Hunt is the story of their crusade.

I initially misread that, thinking it was referring to the English rock and blues guitarist Jeff Beck. Still a great story, but that would have been better.
Yes, I do rather like the idea of Jeff Beck as an axe-wielding, grammar nazi road warrior.
