Something New!

From the Minutes of the Federal Open Market Committee http://federalreserve.gov/fomc/minutes/20050322.htm:

Ms. Cumming, Messrs. Guynn and Lacker, Mses. Pianalto and Yellen, Alternate Members of the Federal Open Market Committee...

I've long known that "Messrs." (abbreviation for Messieurs) was the plural of "Mr." I've long known that "Mmes." (abbreviaton of Mesdames) is the plural of "Mrs." I've never seen a plural for "Ms." before. The Secretary of the Federal Open Market Committee has grasped the stylistic bull by the horns and declared for "Mses."
