.There's been some discussion about scanning books and running them through

.and may or may not read the books.
.The validator may do the same thing, leaving such interesting lines as: "I

.I'm validating a book which has a lot of slight changes, and the ONLY way to
.catch them is to read the book. Proper names which could be Cary or Gary,
.street names which need checking, and ears which drive around the city of
.I guess my point is really just not to trust our scanners and scanning
.programs too far. These books still need to be read before we should put
.them up for public consumption.
