from todays ADN Letters section
Why didn't our authorities reveal truth about local resident's death?
According to the obituaries, someone recently perished from Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. This is the human form of mad cow disease. Why have the authorities not made the public aware that this dreadful malady caused this death, and how much of a potential threat it is to the population as a whole? Most of the deaths from this disease occurred in Britain. Isn't it odd that a person from Anchorage died from it? I am a bit concerned.
