catch up
just got around to reading the rather anodyne proceedings of Pew's biotech/media conference from last fall. the money shot:
The New York Times Cornelia Dean said the need for science journalists to carefully explain what, for them, are basic scientific terms and concepts every time they write a story can be frustrating. She likened it to requiring sports reporters to "define third base" whenever they write about baseball.... "You want it to be comprehensible to someone who has been in a coma for the last five years."
