    And releasing it on the anniversary, that is disgusting. Is there anything in the world a game company will not capitalize on?

    Yes, it is. "Educational"? What is it teaching them, exactly?

    Maybe the finer points of sharp shooting, who knows....it cannot educate the mind of a 12 year old the difference between fact and fantasy in reference to the one gun theory, that is for sure.

    Saw someone from the company on the Today show this morning--trying to compare it to the reconstructions that forensic scientists did at the time to figure out what happened. "Now everyone can see for themselves what really occurred..." Yeah, right.

    It is pretty tasteless, but having now read the site, it is also educational in some respects. It at least attempts to be historically accurate. I don't think we should really have to wait until all members of the family, etc., are dead to bring up the subject. The reason I think it is tasteless is that whether it can be done in a simulation / "game" does not prove or disprove whether it could have occurred in reality; therefore the game is not really educational. I think Traffic was the company that made "Postal", a totally indefensible (and inane) game. Ironically, IMO a less tasteless version would have set up an actual car with gelatin dummies and put top ranked sharpshooters behind an actual gun to recreate optimal conditions for the situation. This would yield much more useful and accurate information as to what happened. Granted, we will undoubtedly never know what really happened that day, but just because it has been sixty some years, doesn't mean it is irrelevant.
