The Village Voice has a quick reaction to the Bernanke nomination. It’s unremarkable, but not short of entertainment:
Ah, the torturous constraints of political correctness: what once was a chairman had to become a chairwoman, but she was lacking that he. So the person in the chair had to be neutered. Chairperson reminded folks that the person once had a sex, and so would become simply a chair. Now here we have a major-ish newspaper confusing a chairman with a chair — a person with a thing. That’s progress for ya.
