R.I.P. Susan Butcher

Susan Butcher died of leukemia on August 5 at the age of 51.

Who? (And why should anyone outside her family care?)

Susan Butcher once said something to the effect that she wasn't too concerned about the possibility of nuclear winter; it would only mean her comfort zone was that much bigger.

Susan Butcher was the sort of person that little girls should hear about whenever the "Girls can't do that" argument smacks them in the face; Susan Butcher competed in the Iditarod sled race, 1100 miles of full bore Arctic craziness, and won. Four times.

Here's to you, Sue. It was a privilege to share the planet with you.
