The news scarf mystery: A true story of fashion and coincidence

“I wrote the story in April, 2011, when I was a reporter at the Edmonton Journal. You can see the blur of my name at the beginning of the story, the smudge of my e-mail address at the end. If you squint your eyes, you can find certain words in the text. Canadian beef, brain, Creutzfeldt-Jakob. Of all the stories I’ve written through the years, a piece about a fatal degenerative brain disease seems a particularly odd choice to wind up on a piece of clothing.”

Jana G. Pruden – The Globe and Mail – December 2016
