I Don't Understand This
There's really nothing to discuss. We can (and do) always include the names of deceased members (whether they are current on their dues or not), but we are dependent on family/friends/clubs/units to tell us. Just like your local newspaper, the staff isn't omniscient; someone has ...
I Don't Understand This
Hi Steve, I'm not sure why we didn't get your wife's information, but I will list her name in the next issue. (This situation happens a lot: A member is ill for a long period of time, their membership lapses, and they pass away; we don't ...

Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
English suffers from its lack of an epicene third-person pronoun. The trend is definitely moving in the direction of using "their" or "they" instead of the cumbersome "his/her" constructions. Using "he" as a generic pronoun was introduced by 19th century grammarians who placed more emphasis on number agreement than ...
