RIP, Iron Lady.
She has been much maligned by my fellow liberals. I might disagree with much of her political stance, but it's hard to deny that she was very, very good for the UK in the long run. She left a much leaner British government and much wealthier Britain when she was forced out of office.

this morning, Annette Funicello's obit is prominently featured on the front page; Baroness Thatcher's obit is on Page 5 with not even a 'teaser' note on page 1.
