Talking about kicking a hornets’ nest. Saturday’s Wall Street Journal published an op-ed by long time contributor Joseph Epstein that criticized incoming first-lady Jill Biden’s use of the courtesy title/honorific “doctor” or “Dr.” with her name.
The op-ed provoked a storm of on-lin comments. as of this morning almost 4,000, many of which would merit inclusion on public restroom walls. This morning, the WSJ published some of the more respectful dissents. That newspaper also published a riposte by Paul Gigot, its editorial page editor, confirming the WSJ will not give in to the politically correct movement or cancel culture. That piece also brought on a storm of comment.
