Re: Sir Terry awarded honorary doctorate...
Erm... I don't want to rain on anyone's parade but these Honorary Degrees/Doctorates are really meaningless - simply a means of getting publicity for the educational establishment, rather than an endorsement of an individual's worth. The list of people with Honorary this, that and the others from one-time polys would fill a book. (And before I am devoured by Discworld devotees, yes I think TP is very talented, and yes I have many - most? - of his books. This isn't a criticism of him or his abilities.) And Winchester Uni? For heaven's sake, this is not Oxbridge you know.
So, yes, nice for him. Nice for the students and the academic[al]s (unseen and otherwise) who were able to meet him. But let's not get carried away here, folks.
