Why should scientists be different from anybody else?  I hear the same
thing from "marketing" people who don't think they need to know
anything about economics, statistics, or production management, and so

But on *this* list, I think it's reasonable to assume we, and the
people we want to hang out with, care about doing what they do well,
and have at least some curiosity (and ambition!) outside of their
(nominal) fields.
