Then again...maybe totalitarianism is everywhere?

Perhaps the tendency towards totalitarianism, or the desire for certain people to tell others what to do, is ubiquitous. This story describes an anti-Jew comment in a middle-school yearbook that has already been partly distributed. The answer to the insensitive comment? As the story reveals, "[s]tudents who already had their yearbooks were told to rip out page 66, which is where the words appear."

Nice. So, children, things you don't like can simply be removed from sight by ripping out the pages?! Why not just burn the yearbooks and reprint them without the insensitive language?
