Happy Birthday to Marty Krofft, 76. Among the strangest things of the strange 1970s was the dominance of kids network TV, for a while, by Sid and Marty Krofft. I'm pretty sure the ultimate example of this was Lidsville -- which I certainly watched when it was on -- but I'm open to arguments that one of the others was even stranger.
The good stuff:
1. Dylan Matthews on Margaret Thatcher's economic record.
2. Nicole Cliffe on Thatcher.
3. Jamelle Bouie on Thatcher, Reagan, ideology, and time.
4. Dan Drezner on Thatcher and IR.
5. And Thatcher and music, from Matthew Horton at NME and from Dave Weigel. After reflection, by the way, I'd decided that Weigel is just trolling when he claims that the only anti-Reagan line he can remember from US music is from Don Henley.
