Hello everyone.

I heard something very disturbing on the radio this morning. I didn't catch
the whole thing but it seems that a many of the textbooks being used in
classrooms today have great big whopping errors in them. A picture of Linda
Ronstadt labeled as a molecule, and equator going through the United States
were two of the examples I heard. As a technical writer and a mom, I find
this unacceptable. Does anyone know if technical writers are employed for
this type of work?
