Warning: harmful language.
September 18, 2021
Greetings fellow Bizarros:
The National Archives has added a "harmful language" warning above the Constitution, Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights.
"Harmful Language Alert," a National Archives warning reads at the top of the page, "See NARA's Statement on Potentially Harmful Language."
NARA's Statement on Potentially Harmful Content warns that "harmful or difficult content" may be seen in our founding documents and details how they're censoring and revising content.
Some items may: reflect racist, sexist, ableist, misogynistic/misogynoir, and xenophobic opinions and attitudes; - be discriminatory towards or exclude diverse views on sexuality, gender, religion, and more; - include graphic content of historical events such as violent death, medical procedures, crime, wars/terrorist acts, natural disasters and more.
"NARA, working in conjunction with diverse communities, will seek to balance the preservation of this history with sensitivity to how these materials are presented to and perceived by users."
The new speech codes, trigger warnings and censorship of the past are being implemented as part of NARA's "institutional commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility."

Scooter-riding dog and cat duo earn Record
A pair of Canadian pets with a unique hobby set a Guinness World Record for the fastest 5 meters on a scooter by a dog and cat. Melissa Millett, 40, a professional dog trainer in Ontario, said 5-year-old Boston terrier Lollipop and 7-year-old Bengal cat Sashimi formed a close friendship when they were very young. Millett said she trained the animals separately to ride on a small scooter. "Lollipop and Sashimi both enjoyed the scooter alone and it had never occurred to me that they would ride it together," Millett told Guinness World Records. She said the duo took their first tandem ride without her instruction. "One day during practice, Lollipop was working on her scooter riding when Sashimi ran over to try and steal a turn," Millett recalled. "Sashimi jumped on the scooter first, then Lollipop jumped on and started pushing her. We were shocked! They had made up this trick themselves! It is now my absolute favorite trick." Lollipop and Sashimi are now Guinness World Record holders after traveling a distance of 5 meters (16.4 feet) in 4.37 seconds.

'Frankenstein' first edition sells for $1.17m
A first edition of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein set a new world record for a printed work by a woman when it was auctioned for $1.17 million. The three-volume copy of Frankenstein, which still bears its original boards from its 1818 printing, had been projected to sell for $200,000 to $300,000 by auction house Christie's, but the sale closed with a top bid many times that estimate. The sum was reported by Fine Books Magazine to be a new world record for the highest price fetched by a printed work by a woman. Christie's said the edition was one of only 500 printed in Frankenstein's first run, and the copy sold was the first to be offered for auction since 1985.
