The BBC were doing their coverage of the Grand National and put up a table of horses, jockeys and so forth after the race. I noticed that Katie Walsh was listed as 'Miss Katie Walsh'. All the male jockeys were just first name and surname, but for some bizarre reason her name wasn't enough to point up her sex, didn't satisfy someone somewhere - they felt had to put Miss up there as well. It struck me as very very odd.

I'd like to grasp someone by the lapels - gently - and whisper "but why?"
