A note or two on Margaret Thatcher

Margaret Thatcher passed from this world today, so if I am ever going to post this picture I took back in 2007, this would seem to be the moment:


Yes, that's Prince Andrew, Prince Charles, Margaret Thatcher, and Tony Blair, all in one zoomed shot. I snapped it through the fence at Buckingham Palace during the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the British victory in the Falklands.

Then there is this, and the principle hook in to the mission of this blog: Margaret Thatcher Helped Invent Soft-Serve Ice Cream. I don't care who you are, that's a great woman, right there. The Jersey shore would not be the same without her.

Deeper, and far more eloquent, words from Richard Fernandez.
