Our Zombie Preparedness Has A Long Ways To Go

Jim Geraghty adds this coda to this morning's Morning Jolt:
On Tuesday, AMC tried a publicity stunt to promote their new horror series about life after zombies take over the world, The Walking Dead. The stunt was to hire actors, have the makeup crew turn them into bloody, ugly zombies, and have them start slouching around major landmarks like the Lincoln Memorial and the Brooklyn Bridge and 24 others around the world.

Of course, zombie movies are now so ubiquitous that I half-figured that a well-conditioned and educated populace would simply roll into action with double-tap headshots and creative use of chainsaws to ensure the continued existence of humanity.
More preparation and public education is obviously needed.
