I think if anything can be corrected at the RAW stage (the negative), it is
much better to do it there than at the tiff stage (the print).  I still
think of this in darkroom terms.  I would much rather dodge and burn as I'm
exposing the negative than try to correct the print after the fact.  The
non-destructive editing in LR is fantastic and if I can correct things there
before converting and going to PS, then I'll do it.  There are still a few
things that have to be done in PS, but they are getting less and less as LR
gets more and more effective.
