Shame that free narrators can't edit

While librevox is s great idea, they really ought to vet these recordings for the narrators often fail to edit stunners and mistakes, research annunciation, pronunciation, nor understand the sentences they are often reading. This is a classic, which has been massacred by some egotistic non-professional voice over narrators with very little skill.
