times are a-changin'

From James Fallow’s blog posting about Shinseki:

the first Asian-American in a military-related cabinet position

I love how we are starting to have to pile on the adjectives. It’s no longer enough to say, “the first Asian-American in a cabinet position”. (That would be Norm Mineta.)

I look forward to the day when I see something like:

the first left-handed Asian-American woman from a university in the Minnesota named to be the National Security Advisor under a Republican president

And what will be really cool is the day when they don’t even bother with any adjectives.
