Arise, Sir Jonathan

Talking of Rabbi Sacks, he's just been awarded a knighthood.
The only question in my mind is what took so long. As I've mentioned before, R. Sacks -- now Rabbi Dr. Sir Jonathan Sacks -- is one of the most, if not the most prominent and respected religious leaders in the UK, practically an unoffical Archbishop of Canterbury... Indeed, he has been much more successful amongst non-Jews in this country than he's been amongst Jews, with whom he naturally has a more complicated relationship. Congratulations!
