Perhaps jjmoney62 was referring to this, presented in the breathtakingly insensitive lede of the Great Falls (Mont.) Tribune:<p>The future of Doug Swingley's stellar dog mushing career is unclear, as was his vision Friday after he frostbit his eyes and was forced to drop out of Alaska's Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race last week. <p>"It's definitely a problem that I've got to work out," the four-time Iditarod champion from Lincoln said of dealing with what could be permanent eye damage. "I've got to figure out a way to continue."<p>[ March 15, 2004: Message edited by: Matthew Grieco ]</p>

And yesterday, in a surprise move, a dog from the team in the lead dropped dead.

The future of Doug Swingley's stellar dog mushing career is unclear, as was his vision Friday after he frostbit his eyes and was forced to drop out of Alaska's Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race last week.
<p>Frostbit his eyes? Is that dialect or a regionalism or just bad writing?
