Bush, Cheney Named Among 'Worst People of All Time' in Yearbook

SAUL LOEB/AFP/Getty Images(RUSSELLVILLE, Ark.) -- Someone appears to have forgotten to read the rules about what's appropriate for the school yearbook at Arkansas' Russellville Middle School.

One of the categories that somehow slipped the attention of editors was "Top 5 worst people of all time."  Those making the dubious list in order were Adolph Hitler, Osama bin Laden, Charles Manson, George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.

Some parents discovered the list, which Russellville School Superintendent Randall Williams called "an oversight."  Since it was too late to republish the books, the school put permanent tape over the list, although it wasn't so permanent since the tape can easily be removed.

As it turned out, the list originated from a website called, although the former president and vice president were ranked at numbers 22 and 26 respectively on that list, meaning someone had to have modified the list that appeared in the yearbook.

Williams says he's questioned the adult sponsor of the yearbook, who admits not scanning that particular page before it went to print.
