+ - Hawking, Lording it up..

Quietly_Confident writes: "A petition on the official UK government 'Number 10 Downing Street' web site is inviting British citizens or residents to impetrate the conference of a life peerage on Prof. Stephen Hawking. The petition suggests that; "Professor Stephen Hawking, one of the greatest minds this country has and has had, who should have been Knighted a decade ago should actually be conferred a peerage [Lord Hawking]".

A life peerage would entitle Prof. Hawking to sit in the House of Lords should he wish to. With recent honours for cash scandals, it would be a breath of fresh air if a truly Great and deserving Britton was honoured appropriately, possibly in the Prime Minster's Resignation Honours List."

Humanity has the stars in its future, and that future is too important to be lost under the burden of juvenile folly and ignorant superstition. - Isaac Asimov
