Prime Minister Thatcher’s Funeral Is Wednesday
The BBC has published details of Maggie Thatcher’s funeral Wednesday. In typical British understatement, “Ronald Reagan’s widow Nancy is understood to be too frail to travel.” Thus, the American delegation will include only our most important representatives linked to Thatcher’s decade-plus-one years of service as Prime Minister of our arguably most important ally (the titles are the BBC’s): Former US Secretary of State and Nobel | Read More »

A Great Leader Has Fallen
My first memory of Margaret Thatcher came during the Falklands War. I was in junior high school — but I remember watching Prime Minister Thatcher on television. She was defiant, resolute — confident that she was on the side of right. Her friendship with Ronald Reagan made them an unstoppable force. Together took on the unions and brought down Communism. She delivered on her promise | Read More »
Is Austerity Failing?
n his latest New York Times column, economist Paul Krugman criticizes the “pain caucus” in Europe, notably the European Central Bank (ECB), for insisting that sound money and balanced budgets will somehow fix all of the continent’s fiscal woes.

Who in the GOP is really targeting Palin?
In a guest post on The Moderate Voice, Floyd and Mary Beth Brown argue: Those knifing Palin are the old-guard Republicans who don’t want to see her as the nominee in 2012. The old-guard GOP candidates are likely Gov. Haley Barbour or former Gov. Mitt Romney. I disagree. I haven’t seen any compelling evidence that either Gov. Barbour or former Gov. Romney want to take | Read More »
