Another French Revolution (for Bureaucrats)
Bureaucrats care deeply about titles, which is why this change in France is a revolution. Where the U.S. has "Miss", "Mrs." and "Ms", the French have had only "mademoiselle" and "madame". But no more. As described by Dirk Beauregarde, instead of coming up with a third term as we did, French feminists have forced the bureaucracy to do away with "mademoiselle" and use only "madame". And Sarkozy is a right winger.
