Evening Photo: Thatcher, Reagan sit on an Oval Office patio – summer 1987

I’m still reflecting today on the passing of the Baroness Thatcher. Thought this photo was a lovely reminder of days gone by. I look at this, and wonder what they were discussing. Whatever it was, their mutual admiration was clearly visible.

  1. As an indication of how polarized this country has become, the LSM showed old black-and-white photos of Thatcher with Carter while the conservative outlets, seeking to honor her memory instead of besmirch it, showed color photos in Reagan’s company as above.

    On a related note, Janna Winter from Fox News is facing contempt of court charges and jail time for refusing to divlulge a confidential source for Aurora shooter James Holmes’ sketch book showing graphic images of violence. Nary a peep is heard from the LSM crowd. But were it an NYT reporter, the throngs with torches, ropes, and pitchforks would be out en masse.
