Testy Times

Not a good day for dementia-bound Baroness Thatcher, former subcommanandte of the UK. First her son Mark is arrested in South Africa, charged with plotting a coup in Equatorial Guinea. Then her favorite newspaper, the Sun, shows remarkable equanimity at Mark facing justice in a country ruled by what it suggests is a testicle-eating despot.

Then her best friend, retired Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet has his immunity from prosecution lifted. You'd think we'd be in an ideal position to see how the local populace has reacted, but we've been sleeping. We'll ask the transport minister at dinner.
