Scheme or Common Lisp?

A sure way to start a flamebait in any Lisp forum is to ask what’s better, Scheme or Common Lisp, or, as a poster did today at comp.lang.scheme, whether Scheme is geared towards academics and CL to real world applications. Fortunately, one can always count on the good sense of lispers like Ray “Bear” Dillinger, who answered with this long, informed and very interesting post: recommended reading.

(To me, the answer is crystal-clear: both.)
