Whither the term “secretary?”

Secretary: old-fashioned, steno-paddish, coffee-bringer, Remington-Rand (See my post of April 30, 2006 on my clepsydra award.). Not at all the racy image of the EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT, or the ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT, let alone the EXECUTIVE ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT!

Title inflation has blown up tradition (See my post of April 23, 2006 about the change in ratios of secretaries to lawyers.) and the new moniker outstrips changes in responsibility.
