|Another award for Al Gore|
The degree - an Honorary Doctor of Laws and Humane Letters in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology - will be given to Gore at the spring commencement exercises of the College of Arts and Sciences on May 14, where he will be the featured speaker."Why?" you ask. Let's see what UT Knoxville Chancellor Jimmy G. Cheek said:
"Vice President Gore's career has been marked by visionary leadership, and his work has quite literally changed our planet for the better,"No, this isn't a joke. He was serious when he said it. Really.
Now, I'm not saying that Gore shouldn't be given an award or a degree. I'm just not sure that the degree he's getting is most appropriate.
