Thanks for the tip. Amazing how such a cocktail didn't kill you, but then again, you can't kill something that's already dead.

Yes, the TSA boys were stealing people's Cash out of bags they were checking.
This is another reason why no one trusts gov anymore. It's filled with CROOKS from Top to Bottom.

Animal Legal Defense Fund, In Defense of Animals, and Sled Dog Action Coalition sent action alerts to their members to contact the sponsors, including TSA, of this horribly cruel race to stop their support of it.

The dogs are excited and pumped at the start of the race, but, according to the official Iditarod website, about half the dogs donít make it to the finish line. They canít hack it,Ėitís too long and arduous. They are pushed to exhaustion, suffering illness, injury or death.

Dogs die almost every year in the Iditarod,Ė6 dogs in 2009, bringing the total known to 142. How can mushers accept dogs dying as a trade-off for the glory of completing the Iditarod or Yukon Quest? Two dogs died in this year's Yukon Quest. This is totally unacceptable and these dog-killer races should end.

Thank you TSA. Hopefully more sponsors will follow and end their support.
