ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Four-time Iditarod champion Susan Butcher, who in 1986 became the race's second female winner and brought increased national attention to its grueling competition, has died. She was 51.
Butcher died Saturday in a Seattle hospital of a reoccurrence of leukemia after a recent stem-cell transplant, her doctor said.
If stem cells can't cure a celebrity athelete like Butcher, they can't work on anyone. And if Snowflake Children can't stay alive in Alaska, where can they stay alive? And it was obviously global warming that killed them. Damn you, Al Gore!
