"Toto, we're not in Kansas feel free to think for yourself."

Apparently the British public is showing their opinion on mandatory reverence:
Lady Thatcher’s death could propel The Wizard Of Oz track "Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead to the top of the charts.

Those who saw her death as a cause for celebration have prompted a download surge for the track.

Within 24 hours of the former Prime Minister’s death, the song had risen to number 9 in the iTunes best-sellers chart. It reached number 2 on the Amazon singles download chart.

If Reagan's death had prompted a similar response in this country, maybe we wouldn't be inundated with demands to put his face on the dime, or on Mt. Rushmore, or name every podunk elementary school after him.

The Brits have every harm she did etched in their collective memory. Here, I'm not sure most people even remember who Reagan was, let alone the damage he did.

In 1987 Thatcher said,
"They are casting their problems at society. And, you know, there’s no such thing as society. There are individual men and women and there are families. And no government can do anything except through people, and people must look after themselves first."

She's been proven wrong once again, as today society is dancing on her grave, despite having utterly no financial interest in doing so.

Alas, enough of the Brit voters think what was wrong with her was that she was insufficiently classy. They've put the toffs back in charge and it's even worse.
