Composer as "he" sightings: #1 in a series that I hope will end soon

This article by William Kraft deserves 3 "he"s: one for Bernard Holland, whom he takes to task, one for himself, and one for President John F. Kennedy, who Kraft quotes at the end of the article.

What is the plural of "he" anyway?

Reading that essay reminds me of one of my college philosophy classes, mid-1970s: "The Problem of Man." Any current manual of style advises writers to avoid inappropriate gender-specific language. Why haven't these guys caught on?
