Pardon, but is this reciprocal?

Tis' the season of pardons - I blog on Practical Ethics about my scepticism about pardoning Turing and a little theory of gratitude.

It is nice that they pardoned Turing, but the act itself doesn't mean much and actually has a disturbing undertone of elitism. But unlike the Russian amnesty there is an underlying attempt at reciprocity.
