Margaret Thatcher's Hometown Knows Its Priorities

"Only on afternoons when the cinema offers retirees half-price tickets has there been much of a crowd for The Iron Lady, the controversial film about Mrs. Thatcher, who is now 86. [...] A therapist, Lauren Hall, 24, had her own perspective. 'People who come to Grantham are more interested in Isaac Newton,' who attended school in the town from 1655 to 1661 and has a statue in the town’s main square, she said. In case the visitor had not grasped Newton’s place in history, she offered a prompt. 'Did you know he invented the cat flap?' she said." Huh. This can only benefit Viola Davis, right? [NYT]
