Actually, even the gray lady herself, the New York Times refers to a sitting President as Mr, at least after the first reference.

The NYT has the credibility and quality of used cat litter nowadays. 


FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

It's "The Official Guide to Names, Titles, and Forms of Address" by "The Protocol School of Washington".

Which has it's HQ in Columbia SC.

It is about as official as the French male model in the State Farm TV commercial.

Ok, then if basing whether they are "Official" or not depends on their geographic location that eliminates you as an authority too.  :)

I'm just interested in a real source. I found one in Britian dealing with how to address former Prime Ministers, but nothing related to US Presidents.

You were given 2 sources...

 

Here's more however I have a feeling no matter how many are given you still won't be satisfied.

As I said before, isn't there an official guide on this?

 

And it isn't that I disagree with how to address a former President.  I'm just curious as to a bona fide source and why (although the Miss Manners link you posted has the best indication I've read so far -- dealing when President Washington left office).

I gave you Miss Manners/Washington Post, Emily Post (The authority on etiquette) and "The Official Guide to Names, Titles, and Forms of Address".  If you don't believe them you're not going to believe anyone.

Long before it was announced that he was leaving—perhaps not entirely of his own volition :smoking: — he was knocking the NBC brass at every turn. Kinda asking for it. Now he's taken the gloves off and put on the brass knuckles.


"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

Which time?  There was some animosity when Leno left for Conan the first time ... being a top rated show where the host does not want to go and the viewers do not want the host to go backed up Leno's side of the argument. Now it seems to be a better orchestrated handoff - a decision made based on today's marketplace not a promise made five years ago to the younger comedian.

 

If Leno wasn't punching at NBC he might be the only comedian not doing so ... and poking at your network is a staple of late night comedians. Even ones who are happy at the network where they are (Craig Ferguson).
