The use of "gentleman" as you described has bothered me for years. I even hear policemen use it as," the gentleman was arrested when he was caught beating his wife." This is no gentleman! I remember when politicians who were caught in some immoral or shameful act would act remoreseful and slink away where they should be! Now they hold their heads up and carry on while our adolescent culture is diverted by a new celebrity event! We are a nation of children who holds no one accountable. Too bad for the victims.
