AnonymousThe rule in the English language to make a singular noun possesive is add apostrophe s. No exeptions. Ever!I don't usually both participating in threads this old, but this is not correct.
The "old classics" like Jesus, Socrates, etc, who end in S often do NOT get the 's.

I would also suggest that any rule that says "no exceptions, ever" is almost always going to be incorrect. English is a language replete with exceptions.
