I was hoping that Stingl would somehow weave in a reference to what has to be the most memorable story on these matters ever to appear in the old Milwaukee Journal.
That would be veteran medical reporter (and 2014 Milwaukee Press Club Hall of Fame Inductee this weekend) Neil Rosenberg's early 1990's expose of a surgical hair transplant doctor who'd enlisted the help of an assistant who lacked a medical license - - but did have a background in animal skinning and farm work.
I couldn't find the story on line. Maybe someone else can. I know this story ran because I remember someone in the newsroom singing a bit of "Mule Skinner Blues" as the story was being read.
