It was nice to see such an outpouring of respect from all the politicians and dignitaries who attended Nelson Mandela's funeral ("Mandela's 'long walk is over,'" Dec. 11).

Too bad those same politicians and dignitaries didn't show the same respect for former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher by showing up for her funeral as well.
