What in hell were they thinking?

OK, so they made the right choice in removing it...but why the hell did they develop it in the first place? A tsunami GAME? And a cartoon dancing frog?

From today's NewsScan Daily (www.newsscan.com):

FEMA YANKS ONLINE TSUNAMI GAME
Afraid it would be seen as unintentionally trivializing the recent tsunami disaster, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has removed from its Web site an online game that was meant to educate kids about tsunamis. The game, designed in 1998, asked players to guide beach objects back to their proper places after they were scattered by a tsunami.
Game-winners were awarded with a link to a cartoon dancing frog. (AP/San Jose Mercury News 21 Jan 2005)
