Editor? We don’ need no stinkin’ editor!

With apologies to John Huston, Dear Gentle Reader(s), one moans the use of spell check in the absence of editors who are a bit more sentient than an application.

Here is a quote from today’s The Desert Sun obituary page.  It seems a man who recently died also recently, in 2007, “marred” the woman who became his widow.

One doubts she would agree.

A spell check program is less expensive than a live editor or at least a proof reader, but the trade off is of dubious value.
