An interesting commentary on the interaction between scientists and journalists

http://www.nytimes.com/2003/11/11/science/commentary-rousing-science-out-of-the-lab-and-into-the-limelight.html

“Journalists need scientists who are citizens as well as researchers”

“Journalists can help narrow [the gap between science and public life], but only if scientists raise their voices in the nation’s public debates.”

Well said, Cornelia Dean.

I’ll do my best.
