A Scary Thing Happened

The Smoking Gun reports that FEMA has removed a children’s coloring book from its web site. The book was illustrated by a 68-year-old grandmother, and was intended to help kids “cope with disasters.” Criticism of the downloadable book stemmed from illustrations depicting the terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center.

What do you think; is this the case of an overly sensitive reaction to criticism, or completely inappropriate judgment by a government agency?

The story and a PDF copy of the book.
