      "Spare us your editorials and horrible editing"

      It seems logical that if the audible version is an abridged version of the printed version the first thing to go should be the editorial. However, it is always there. Spare us your usually wrong-headed opinions and give us more articles. The editing is also consistently bad. I counted 4 spots in this issue where the narrator does a second take of a sentence and the both takes are left in. Frankly I find it insulting.
