In today's show I referred to my elected position as a member of "The Board of Selectmen". This is the outdated though-still-official name in most towns of the local governing body now commonly referred to as the gender-neutral "Selectboard" We are no longer Selectmen. We are Selectboard members. I suppose it sounded quainter and weightier and funnier for me to use the archaic form in the show. Apologies to all my fine female fellow (fellow?) Selectboard members.
