What is a criminologist, anyway?
Put away your grin, wiseacre, if you were planing to say, "someone who practices or studies criminology."
As a member of the American Society of Criminology, the largest and most respected professional organization of criminologists in the world, I receive a subscription to ASC's newsletter titled The Criminologist. Normally, there's a feature article with academic-y, ivory tower kinds of ruminations, along with news and happenings in the field, job listings, and teaching tips for the professorial types.
