By the criteria I laid out in my previous message, both are trained,
competant scholars.  To be a scholar is to have the training and the
intellectual ability to participate in scholarship.  To do (publish)
scholarship is to enter into a debate or discussion with other scholars.
To be a scholar does  not necessarily make one "right."
