Well, I guess that idea is dead before it's even undead.

Given what's been going on in Michigan, the zombies would likely starve from lack of a food source...

Better shoot the proposal twice in the head to make sure it stays dead.

Well, I guess you have to "roll" with the punches. Oh wait, wrong thread.

Maybe they'll shift to Plan 9. I hear it's from out-of-town. :)

If I understand Michigan's "emergency manager" law correctly, once the city can no longer keep its finances in order, the Governor is permitted to appoint a zombie to run the town anyway...

Touches on the Zombie thing - look at what people pay to do this. 

A Romp With The Undead

Might need to reconsider Mr. Mayor.

Those zombie runs are what I first thought of when the other thread was first posted. I first heard about it last year when they held one near Baltimore; a friend of mine had considered signing up. Doesn't really interest me much, but it seems like it would be fun.

I guess zombies are still cool. Here I thought the trend had peaked.

They always say, you can't keep a good zombie down.

I'm surprised they said no, the dystopian theming would really beautify that city!
