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.

I am somewhat disappointed in mr. Hawking as this just goes to display that even he believes being famous or rich makes one more important than the other people

IIRC (from the stories when he was looking for a new assistant), Hawking isn't that nice in person. :p

But then, with his accomplishments, he doesn't have to be.
