My Brush With Margaret Thatcher
by Jamison Koehler on April 8, 2013
London. June 1990. I was low man on the U.S. delegation, probably the most junior person at the whole negotiation. She was the most powerful woman on earth. And yet when I walked toward the group she was standing with, surprised at how easy it was to approach her, she stepped back from the circle to allow me in.
Manners like that can only make an impression on you. She was a classy woman no matter what you thought of her politics. May she rest in peace.
