Former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher died Monday. She was 87. The Iron Lady served 11 1/2 terms in office, making her the longest-serving British prime minister of the 20th century. As with other transformational leaders, Thatcher had both devoted fans and harsh critics. “For admirers, Thatcher was a savior who rescued Britain from ruin and laid the groundwork for an extraordinary economic renaissance,” Associated Press reported. “For critics, she was a heartless tyrant who ushered in an era of greed that kicked the weak out onto the streets and let the rich become filthy rich.”
