Adolph and Me

Abby Zimet

A middle school in Russellville, Arkansas is in hot water after its yearbook listed the "Top 5 Worst People of All Time" - to wit: Hitler, Bin Laden, Charles Manson, George Bush and Dick Cheney. Some parents were unhappy. Maybe they thought Cheney should've gotten the second slot? Icing on the cake: The school district tried to solve the problem by covering the list with tape, which promptly fell off. Cherry on top: In its report, Fox News spelled 'Adolf' wrong.

"Really?" said (school superintendent) Williams when told the tape could be pulled off. "Well, that's disappointing because the yearbook supplier told us this was a definite fix."
