Priscilla Klaus

Just watched Priscilla Queen of the Desert, and a mighty fine bus she is too. I thought it untopable until I read Cesky rozhlas news just now.

The German press has reported that President Vaclav Klaus never received the Konrad Adenauer Prize, which he threatened to return last week. Mr Klaus wrote to the foundation last Thursday saying he would return the prize to protest their cancellation of a appearance by one of his former advisors at an upcoming conference. The president's website also says he received the award in 1993. However, the Frankfurter Algemeine has revealed that Mr Klaus never received the prize, and was only awarded an honorary diploma by the foundation's Prague branch, which it says was seeking good relations with then Prime Minister Klaus.

I think the President's website should read Wikipedia. It clearly states that the last prize was awarded in 2001, and its list of laureates unequivocally includes not one Vaclav.

Time I goed to New York to see Priscilla live on stage. What say you?
