Reuters today: “Revealed: Famous names who snubbed UK Queen”s honors”

Dear DMC

Avoiding limelight . . . avoiding fame . . . avoiding glitz and glam . . . these are hallmarks of dull men.

Turning down one of the many honours handed out under the Queen’s system for this twice a year — not joining one of the many Knights, Dames, CBEs, QBEs, MBEs — isn’t that one of noblest acts a dull man can undertake?
