Lady T's Mark Twain Moment
Just after midnight my feed reader alerted me to THIS post on Recess Monkey, announcing the death of Lady Thatcher. Call me naive, but I just couldn't believe Alex Hilton would post something like that without him being confident it is true. I phoned News 24 to check it out, thus sending them into a blind panic. Word spread on the net, with the PoliticalBetting.com site readers wanting more info. I rang Alex but he didn't answer. I've texted him and I have emailed him. It's 10.30am and he hasn't responded. The comments on his thread show what his readers think of him. They are not alone.
