This one, I believe, Terry and I
hammered out together. It was a lot of fun to write.
Scott Burnside was a reporter for the Windsor
Star who eventually went to the Toronto Sun and made his name
reporting on the Karla Homolka/Paul Bernardo trials. Terry had him once in
a creative writing course at university. I think Burnside was taking it
with his then girlfriend, another Windsor Star reporter and a woman
Terry had a bit of an eye for.
Ms. Ectaggart was a reference to our
friend Helen McTaggart.
