    OK, I’m slow. What’s the problem with that headline? (BTW, it’s no longer the headline, so someone else obviously get’s what I don’t!)

    Well, I think they changed it because of this definition:

    fig·ure·head [fig-yer-hed] –noun

    1. a person who is head of a group, company, etc., in title but actually has no real authority or responsibility: Most modern kings and queens are figureheads.”

    It would seem that their new choice (“Dean”) is a tad more respectful.

    I guess “figurehead” fit the space for the headline and someone didn’t get the definition. Once it’s online you can change it to anything b/c space doesn’t matter.
