Well done! And thank you.

And I'm sick of people calling this a "PC" issue. This issue predates the
current PC trend by many years. Most PC issues just rode in on the
coattails of feminism. The use of "he" is not merely an issue of
offending women (though the possibility should always be a consideration)
but more importantly it is an insidious form of linguistic disenfranchise-
