Pratchett knighted...at last!

Pratchett's contribution to literature is massive, so I've no idea why it's taken this long for him to be made a knight of the realm - perhaps his illness is a factor? 

Anyway, he thoroughly deserves it.

It's a good decision.

Apparently the tipping point for the decision was him raising $1 million for Alzheimer's charity, which in turn sparked the Match It For Pratchett charity, which has raised several thousand more dollars for research.

I think he deserved the award on literary accomplishment alone, to be honest. Still, doesn't matter now. :)
