Colorado school officials black out assassination joke in yearbook
The Secret Service is investigating a yearbook prank at a Colorado high school. Administrators at Mesa Ridge High School in Widefield recalled about 100 yearbooks so they could black out a joke caption under one student's picture.
It said "most likely to assassinate President Bush." Staffers used markers to obscure the words in both the distributed and undistributed copies. One student who just graduated says the yearbooks were "ruined." She says most students thought the blacking-out was a bad idea since the caption was a joke. Widefield School District officials say the prank wasn't caught before the yearbooks were printed. A district spokesman says future yearbooks will be triple-checked before printing.
