I would hardly class looking at someone distantly through a barrier a "moment".

I also saw Thatcher, I can assure you I was a lot less awed and much, much angrier.

As usual, Margaret Thatcher gets the rosy-colored glasses treatment, ignoring her actual policies. As a friend of mine put it, when he heard of her passing: "Looks like someone found the last horcrux."

How about the vast blue-collar working force of Britain that has lost ground precipitously since Thatcher destroyed their power to negotiate a decent work contract? Britain's income inequality is worse than ours, and 50% greater than it was when she took office. Thatcher was a disaster for everyone but the top 10%.

Like the extreme right wing of America, she pandered to bankers and other big business, and in the end the rich were richer and the rest of the people lost ground economically. We revere her because she backed our every inclination to make war. But we as a strong nation should not be proud of shedding so much blood. Her tie to us is as a friend, but not a hero or idol.
