Like Jonah, I’m Getting Old

Here was a little straw in the wind. I was at Fox last night. A nice young employee handed me the text of Bush’s speech. I said, “Oh, thanks. Is this the whole text?” (Excerpts had already been floating around.) She said, “Yep.” There was a pause. Then she said, “I mean, yes sir.” I was confused: “What?” “I should say to you, ‘yes, sir,’” she said. So there it is: I’m becoming a “sir.”
