Wit & Wisdom
Yesterday was Margret Thatcher's funeral. I don't know what it was like to be British when she was Prime Minister, but I do recall an awful lot of Americans didn't particularly like her. My strongest memory of her from the era was from B. Dalton Bookstore. They had this nice hardcover book titled The Wit and Wisdom of Margaret Thatcher. When you opened the book it was nothing but blank pages. That's my strongest memory of her, although I can't imagine why anyone would actually buy a book like that. I certainly didn't, though I still remember it.
