Dr. Toblerone "Tobey" Dimpflmeier

US and A (New England Journal of Medicaine) - U Is For Undiagnosed Staph Infection would be an appropriate title for the next Sue Grafton book, after a whirlwind book-signing tour across the lower 48 states in which scores of attendees were likely exposed to Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

Dr. Tobey Dimpflmeier -- the great-nephew (twice-removed) of Sir Alexander Ogston, who first discovered Staph bacteria -- was dispatched from his home in rural Saskatchewan to make the diagnoses.

"I have written everyone in the United States a prescription for antibiotics, just to be safe," explained Dr. 'D'. "It might make the bacteria even more dangerous for our grandchildren, but that's a risk that we have to be willing to take."

Grafton declined to comment. But a representative stated that she likely contracted the infection from a "pimple-faced, Kentucky teenager".
