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'?
