Kids were scrapped from the Union storyline after Columbine happened. That was easy... the characters were drawn as adults even though they still acted like the children (teenagers) they were scripted to be.... but I can not see them editing out the planetwide destruction of Coruscanr Skyscrapers based on what just happened. First the novel would have to be not only delayed, but the storyline would have to be altered just to avoid any comparisons to what happened in new York. I see that as impossible to do at this point without ruining the overall story. I hope this does not happen.
