There are lots of science journalists who write about a
different technical topic every week, yet they somehow manage to
get it right. Sports journalists somehow they manage to provide
us with all our information about sports (and occasionally win
Pulitzer prizes). That's because they are WRITERS and they have
knowledge, not necessarily experience, of their subject.

Who do you think would write the better piece about boxing -
Mike Tyson or Mike Lupica? (Not that I wouldn't be interested in
an article by Tyson)
