Journalism needs to up its game on stories where we don't (yet) know the answer.
Terrific column, Dick. Quoting competing experts who can't yet come even close to knowing the answer is an exercise in futility.
Dick, it's been a long time since Wisemen had us opining about Reagan or Carter, or the real sources of artificial sweeteners. (Remember that evening?) However, you've done a magnificent job with the brave and bright reporters you've assembled, and the Gothamist is print proof that a real job of reporting can and must be done. Your good column is a fine call to action.
