Brickbat: What's Too Painful to Remember


Officials at Bigelow High School in Arkansas ripped out two pages from the 2020-2021 yearbook before delivering copies to the students who paid for them. The pages had a timeline of major events from the school year, including the first U.S. death from COVID-19, riots following the death of George Floyd, the death of Alex Trebek, Apple's market valuation topping $2 trillion, and NASA flying a drone on Mars. East End School District Superintendent Heidi Wilson justified the move by citing "community backlash." In response to an open records request by the Arkansas Times, the school system said there were no emails or other records related to complaints about the pages.
