    The lady was a champ
    MANCHESTER, England -- There is a story about Margaret Thatcher that is probably apocryphal but speaks volumes about the strength of Britain's first female prime minister, who died Monday at age 87. Following her election in 1979, the story goes that...

  • London Olympics close with more music and much praise

    London Olympics close with more music and much praise
    It must be true: All good things indeed must come to an end — a fireworks-strafing, confetti-showering and rock-god-reviving end if you're talking about the Summer Olympics that concluded Sunday. "We lit the flame, and we lit up the world," said...

    Romney was right: The Olympics are a hot mess
