Whose kung fu is the best?

The librarian’s, baby. The librarian’s.

Reporters who are worth a damn find it difficult to do many of their best stories without the help of what, for lack of a better term, we’ll call librarians. This can be both people who actually work in a public library (shout out to the Steves!) and the people at the paper whom we used to call librarians and now call news researchers. Simple good manners and common sense dictate that any reporter/editor with a lick of sense treat these people like the valued colleagues they are. But beyond that, you don’t ever want to hack these people off because … well, they know things. Things they can hurt you with.
