Celeb Spotting: Margaret Thatcher Dies at 87

This morning in my Journalism class, my very English professor gasped as she had heard the unfortunate news that Margaret Thatcher died this morning from a stroke at age 87. Why is this important? For those of you who do not know, she was the first female Prime Minister of England and a hard-working conservative politician who served from 1970-1990.

Her spokesman Lord Bell made the announcement: “It is with great sadness that Mark and Carol Thatcher announced that their mother Baroness Thatcher died peacefully following a stroke this morning. A further statement will be made later.”

Buckingham Palace released the following statement: “The Queen was sad to hear the news of the death of Baroness Thatcher,” it read. “Her Majesty will be sending a private message of sympathy to the family.”

“Power is like being a lady… if you have to tell people you are, you aren’t.”

Margaret Thatcher October 13, 1925-April 8,2013

BLEU. She's an oasis child busy being born in New York. She lives in the East Village and spends time writing, reading, making movies, shopping at Chrome Hearts and Opening Ceremony. You might find her indulging at Momofuku, or, she is spinning off those calories at Equinox while simultaneously doing homework.
