The custom of former officeholders keeping, and using, their former titles is grotesque.

Maybe, but not really near the top of my concerns at the moment.

Excellent! I have LOTS of ideas. No need to add me to the masthead, though (wouldn’t want to give my racist uncle the satisfaction of seeing my name near D’Souza’s). Let’s keep my advisory role casual.

Sure. It isn’t a partisan point. I originally wrote about this when Romney was being called “Governor.”

YES! The founders were pretty clear on this subject: “No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States”

I still want to know why PhDs can be called "Doctor", but with my master's degrees I can't expect to be called "Master".

Yes, a thousand times YES. I cringe every time I see Newt Gingrich referred to /deferred to as “Speaker Gingrich.” He was Speaker for, what? 3 years? 20 years ago?

The custom of addressing someone by their title is courtesy; someone referring to themselves by title is grotesque.

Totally agree. He should have to call himself U.S. Fondler Al Franken.
