Like her or hate her, she has cemented her place in history.

Can't say that I was a fan of hers but she's definitely left a serious impression on the Cold War era.

Can't say I liked her all that much. I know many people (including my own parents) whose reaction was this:

I didn't like her politics or policies, but I can't say I agree with celebrating her death. I can't recall anyone who did that when Ronald Reagan died.

It's interesting to read about the reactions from Britain in various press. Some of you guys really hated her. Kind of childish in a way, especially when the person is 87 years old and retired.

She caused a lot of very real misery in this country. Homelessness, poverty, not to mention destroying many people's livelihoods and careers. There are still places in this country suffering from the effects of her policies and a whole new generation suffering from the people following in her footsteps. It may not seem like it but the anger is justified for a lot of people.
