Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan

Madame Thatcher has passed away.
From what I have read in the press, I am glad I never knew her, nor did I ever have a chance to live in a country under her rule.

If I had, I would either have to party wildly celebrating her death, which is very unseemly, or I would have had to write obsequious and rather over-blown and mendacious eulogies to her memory... again, unseemly is the word which seems to describe the process.

I did have Ronald Reagan as President for a spell.
I wish I had known him, but merely as a human being, not as some awful lord-of-the-flies totem that Republicans have turned him into.
What could be better than a human being?
