Failing basic censorship. (via)

The faculty of Sabina high school in Arizona have found themselves in the news after attempting to cover up student's yearbook quotes they deemed unfit to print. Problem was, the books had already been printed, so they did the next worst thing, which was crudely cover the offending words in all 1300 copies of the book using duct tape.

It's no secret that duct tape is good for all sorts of things. However, censorship isn't one of them.  Any high school kid whose curiosity could be stifled by an inch of tape probably isn't ready for the real world. Not surprisingly, instead of permanently erasing the quotes, the result was the yearbook equivalent of a scratch-off ticket. And instead of cash, the prize was an "inappropriate" one-liner and a $75 book with torn pages.
