Kailee Barnes's curator insight, April 17, 2013 12:56 PM

This article is about how Senate Democrats wanted to honor Margret Thatcher for her political significance and loyalty to the United States. The resolution was passed on Tuesday. 

Brian Burroughs's comment, April 20, 2013 8:20 PM
It sounds to me that the democrats didn't want to honor her. That's why they are blocking it right? I don't know much about Thatcher but she sounds like a pretty big deal. We would be silly not to honor her regardless of different political beliefs.
