Question of the Week

by Conor Friedersdorf

It's the final week before Andrew returns, and I'd like to begin it with another question for readers: What about your profession or field of expertise do most people not know or fail to understand or appreciate? Straightforward answers are fine, as are reflections on what the media gets wrong about your field, or what insights it gives you that others might find helpful as they try to understand the world. And yes, rants from service employees are also okay.
