I do not expect the general public to know much about microbiology besides what little information they get from the sensationalized version the media gives. It does not necessarily mean they are stupid or anything like that, it is just not their area, I do not know a lot about other fields so why should others know about mine? I do try to impart a little education if and when the situation calls for it.
