Wednesday Morning Cognitive Dissonance

So Bill Gates received honorary knighthood status from Queen Elizabeth today.

I can only think - and the article confirms my suspicion - that this honor was spurred on by the philanthropic works of the Gates Foundation. Well, I guess I could see that. But seriously. Bill Gates, knight commander of the British empire?

A few former presidents (Bush the Elder and Reagan) and Colin Powell have previously received this honorary knighthood. But Bob Hope? Elton John? Bob Geldolf? Can we say 'PR move'?

Thank you for the nice things you said about my banner :) I feel like a fraud now because those leaves are included with Photoshop...
