Re: They

There is a word missing (and it wasn't always so -- but language changes over time). "They" is now the closest thing we have. I don't have any issue with it -- but then, I've been using "they" as a gender-neutral singular pronoun for decades.

If it makes you feel any better, think of it as the "royal 'they'".
