Sir Bill?

Tomorrow Bill Gates gets knighted by the Queen. I wondered if this story was running a month early (should have been April 1st?), but apparently its for real. You really can't be too surprised, though. Gates has single-handedly created more jobs than probably any other person. Let's face it, there are millions of people who make a living fixing his products. You've probably hired one or two yourself, if you aren't one. There are even entire corporations with hundreds (if not thousands) of employees dedicated to fixing his product (Symantec, for example). Creating all those jobs should give him some type of reward, though I tend to think that a hall of shame would be more fitting.
