7. Re: Paging Dr. Lord British Jul 21, 2011, 21:58 Shadowcat
'Honorary doctorates' really irritate me. Unless the recipient has actually done something comparable, it's a slap in the face to everyone who genuinely earned one. Reading that press release, it's quite clear that Garriot, despite the good things he's done with some of his accumulated loot, has in no way earned that title.

It saddens me both that academic institutions need (or feel that they need) to give out doctorates in order to ensure financial support, and that the recipients actually accept them.

(If they called it something different, OTOH, it wouldn't matter.)
