From: a recent Mercury News, in a column by Donald Kaul:

	A year-and-a-half ago, at a dinner in honor of Margaret
	Thatcher, in the course of his prepared speech [Ronald] Reagan
	gave Thatcher a lengthy, warm introduction which stopped the
	show.  The audience gave her a standing ovation and she got up
	and bowed graciously.  When she sat down again, Reagan proceeded
	to read from the top of the same page and gave her the same
	introduction, word-for-word, without embarrassment.  The
	audience was forced to stand again and clap listlessly and she
	had to take another bow, praying that the Gipper would turn the
	page this time.  He did.
