When L.A.O. posted last week on the county's crackdown on the terms "master" and "slave," the issue was already a week old (at least) on the Internet. But the media loves political correctness absurdities no matter how trivial, so the topic lives on. The Daily News ran a story midweek and an editorial yesterday, and today Patt Morrison makes it the lead item in her L.A. Times politics column.
Update 10:25 p.m.: Jacob Sullum at Hit and Run notes the story's global reach and says "it's a little embarrassing when media outlets in Pakistan, Singapore, and China start mocking political correctness in the U.S."
