National Public Zombies

A quick break from Harvey Danger’s “Dead Sea Scrolls” yesterday yielded this story, which included some info from this one, both on NPR. Lets raise up the ZCP up another notch, now that mathmaticians and Canadians are catching the fever. 

I believe this is the third mention of Zombies on NPR in at least as many months.  Do they have some special interest in Zombie information? Are they trying to prepare us for some upcoming invasion, by distributing facts and figures to soften our will of disbelief? Probably not. In such a hyper-informed society, what purpose do so many of these stories serve other than to expand a growing cultural myth with facts and hard to follow equations?

However, as our man John Vanderslice says: “Sometimes a cowboy’s just a man in a cowboy suit.”
