RIP, Mrs. Thatcher

From the Beeb:
Former Prime Minister Baroness Thatcher has died "peacefully" at the age of 87 after suffering a stroke, her family has announced.

David Cameron called her a "great Briton" and the Queen spoke of her sadness at the death.

Lady Thatcher was Conservative prime minister from 1979 to 1990. She was the first woman to hold the role.

She will not have a state funeral but will be accorded the same status as Princess Diana and the Queen Mother.

The ceremony, with full military honours, will take place at London's St Paul's Cathedral.
The union jack above Number 10 Downing Street has been lowered to half-mast.
Baroness  Thatcher was one of the greatest western leaders during the Cold War and a heroine to be emulated in every regard.  She will be missed.


  1. She will be missed!

    The world was a better place with her at 10 Downing Street and Ronald Reagan in the White House.

    When will we see their like again?

    1. Well, if that's not a rhetorical question...
      ...and if the politecal climate continues as is...

      Not soon enough!

    2. I'll second that, Ivan.

  2. The Iron Lady, a woman to be respected and admired. And we are now to look at Hillary as if she is "progress"?

    On another sad note, Annette Funicello died today as well.

    The world lost two wonderful women, though from very different spheres, both are missed.

    1. I saw that Annette died today. I used to watch her FAITHFULLY on the old Mickey Mouse Club. Really, I did.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
