Peace Cat

Yahoo! News Full Coverage - Entertainment - Cat Stevens Gets Peace Award in Rome: "Former Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev presented singer-songwriter Yusuf Islam, formerly known as Cat Stevens, with a peace prize, two months after he was refused entry to the United States on 'national security grounds'. The 'Man for Peace 2004' prize was presented at a ceremony in Rome city hall marking the opening of the Fifth World Nobel Summit, an annual gathering here of Nobel peace laureates led by Gorbachev, who won the prize in 1990."

Sing "Peace Train", get a plane grounded and get granted a Roman peace prize. Shouldn't there be higher standards for such awards?
