Margaret "Iron Lady" Thatcher is no Pussy!

According to this article in the AOL News, the Canadian Government just missed getting caught up in a very embarrassing situation when they listened to a rumor of the death of the “Iron Lady”.

It seems that those attending a formal black tie function began spreading the rumor that the fomer British Prime Minister had died. Instead, it was a cat called “Margaret Thatcher”. Apparently, a Canadian spokesperson had been dispacthed to compose a statement of regret based upon the rumor.

When he did further checking though, he found that it was a cat had died and not the person. This is a great example of why you should always check out every detail and take nothing at face value.

It highlights the importance of my favorite two words:Due Diligence.
