Sir Salman has now been knighted

In a bit of positive news from Britain, the queen has given Salman Rushdie a most well-deserved knighthood (via The Jawa Report):
LONDON (AFP) - Queen Elizabeth II on Wednesday gave the British author Salman Rushdie a knighthood which caused protests by Muslims around the world when it was announced last year.

Rushdie, 61, was knighted for his services to literature.

When the knighthood was announced in the queen's birthday honours list last June, it sparked condemnation from a number of Muslim countries and organisations.
Well boo hoo, cry us a nice cold bath. This is very good for Rushdie, something he should've recieved a long time ago. Any chance he might even get a sword like King Arthur's Excalibur to go with all that?

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
