In the News "Peers and scientists including Professor Stephen Hawking are once again pushing for an official pardon for codebreaker Alan Turing. Turing's death from cyanide poisoning in 1954 was ruled a suicide, coming after his conviction for gross indecency at a time when homosexuality was illegal." The fact that he still hasn't been pardoned is an utter disgrace.

Gotta love it. Grandfather the past to meet current law. This is just stupid. Just when I thought Hawking was smart. Time to move on. Sheesh...

For those that don't think this is stupid, let's just say I can safely tie up our courts and magistrates for the next 1,000 years with these types of adjustments for historical injustice, etc.

What Dr. Hawking is saying is that there are CERTAIN people that are BETTER than others and that ONLY those people deserve these special rewrites...

Goodnight Dr. Hawking... I think you need to sleep on it.
