The world has lost a Conservative icon today, with the passing of Dame Margaret Thatcher, who died of a stroke at age 87.

 

Britain's first and, so far, only female Prime Minister, brought her country out of the doldrums of economic stagnation due to poor leadership.  Love her or hate her, Mrs. Thatcher changed the world.

Dennis Hopper, 74, has died of prostate cancer.

While generally thought of as a straight character actor, he had a surprisingly large number of genre credits, including 1960s TV appearances on The Twilight Zone and The Time Tunnel. In SF films, he's probably best known for his very good performance in the very, very very bad "Waterworld." He was also in "Super Mario Brothers," "Firestarter 2," and "My Science Project."
