I need a break from all the tag lines that push religion. It is those that inspired me to counter them to some degree with my own tag lines. "Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, & the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people."

Okay, Roger, December was a very pertinent observation on people's
propensity for playing God, or thinking they know what God wants them to do.
Now we get the quote from Mr. Marx about religion being the opiate of the
people. I, for one, need a break. Regards, Kim.

That definitely calls for an exception to the strip the headers policy.

I proofed Identical by Ellen Hopkins. If all her books are set up like that

one, and it appears from your comments that they may be, they'll have to be

proofed carefully by a sighted person. In Identical, each narrator's story
was on a different page, the page of one following the page of the other,
with sentences by one person finished on he next page by the other. The
only indicatin of a change was the page heading, and the tone of the story.

Sometimes several pages continued by one narrator before the next one
picked up. I haven't read any of her other books, and maybe the set-up was
only because this book was about identical twins. I found the book
interesting, and provocative, and well worth being in the collection. I'd
be happy to proof any of her books, but at the moment I have 5 to work on.

I just finished reading
Impulse by Ellen Hopkins,
which was added to the collection by an outsourcing group
in Africa. This is one
of the worst outsourced scans I've seen. In fact, I
wonder if anyone bothered to
proof it at all.

The book switched point of
view often, and there
was no indication of this in the scan. Therefore, it was
impossible to know
which character was speaking at any given time. In fact,
due to the lack of
headers, it was impossible to determine how many narrators
even
existed.

I saw several very common
scanning errors that
could have been fixed, if only the book had been read
through. "hail" for "hall"
is an example.

I really looked forward to
reading this book, but
was sorely disappointed by the scan. It really does need to
be redone,
IMO.
