Unless you are being asked to join the Hall of Fame of Evil, you don't say no to a Hall of Fame induction. Ever. Never.

It's as the late Phil Hartman said when he was playing Frank Sinatra: "When someone goes to the trouble to give you an award, you damn well better show up! You don't pull that boycott crap!"
