The lady Thatcher was a champ. MANCHESTER, England -- There is a story about Margaret Thatcher, which 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 Thatcher took her
Unfortunately, we are what we eat. CHICAGO -- People don't know how to eat right. Almost from birth, the food we take in and the way it is marketed conspire to make us addicted and even sick. As a result, all but a few of us will face an early
