RIP, Margaret Thatcher.

The Right Honorable Margaret Hilda Thatcher, Baroness Thatcher, Order of the Garter, Order of Merit, Privy Counselor, Fellow of the Royal Society, has passed away from a stroke at the age of 87. She was the first female Prime Minister of Great Britain, serving from 1979 to 1990, and is widely considered to be the greatest one since Winston Churchill.

Her husband passed away in 2003; Baroness Thatcher is survived by one son, one daughter, and two grandchildren… but not by Soviet Communism, which died in 1991 of complications stemming from prolonged exposure to Margaret Thatcher.
