[Forum] RE: Law-Enforcement Titles before a Name
Per 8.18 and 8.20, I would lowercase all of these. Here's what it states in 8.18: "Civil, military, religious, and professional titles are capitalized when they immediately precede a personal name and are thus used as part of the name ([b]typically replacing the title holder’s first name[/b]). Al

[Forum] RE: Law-Enforcement Titles before a Name
8.24 says that titles and ranks used in the police are treated the same way as military titles (detailed in 8.23). So yes, I would capitalize all of those.

[Forum] Article in a play
CMOS okays dropping articles from book titles when they don't fit the context, but says nothing about play titles. I don't see why play titles are any more sacrosanct than book titles, and I want to drop an article. What sayest the forum?

[Forum] RE: "a Mr. John Doe" in an introduction
I would delete the titles (Mr.) and just use the names. Unless there is some important reason for the titles, or if gender identification is critical and unclear by the names alone, then that could be why they were included. If it's just the author's general style, I'd revise it. I don't include tit

[Forum] RE: German Chancellor Angela Merkel
According to the Associated Press Stylebook (AP), [i]Capitalize formal titles when used immediately before a name. Lowercase formal titles when used alone or in constructions that set them off from a name by commas.[/i] Elsewhere I saw the example [i]Presidents Jimmy Carter and Gerald R. F
