War On Homelessness

Nevada City comes through, just in time for Thanksgiving ...
Any homeless person found sleeping in public without a permit will be arrested ... about 6 to 10 permits initially, at least 60 homeless people in the immediate community ... You know, NC, there's always the sensible option.

Zombies On Broadway

Is anybody surprised NYC hasn't turned into a seething cauldron of zombies in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy? Perhaps its own citizens. And probably Utah, where a couple of weeks ago an electronic road sign was apparently hacked, warning commuters of a Zombie Apocalypse, and it was actually mistaken for news ... Forget about the fact NASA warned long ago that NYC was in for the kind of swamping Sandy unloaded on it this week (thankful are those scientists they don't live in Italy) ... And forget about the fact this lunacy has reached such a fevered pitch the U.S. Center for Disease Control was reportedly pushed into publicly declaring that it does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead. And definitely forget about the CDC's Public Health Matters Blog entry of May 16, 2011, Preparedness 101 : Zombie Apocalypse ... An infestation of insanity maybe, but zombies? Get fucking real.

Not surprisingly, it has reached Calgary, where there has been a lot of talk about a zombie apocalypse over the past couple of years ... That's according to Jayme Nelson, founder of the local Zombie Survivalist Group, which charges an annual $5 membership fee, uses "your strengths" in its recruitment strategy and assures everybody, as it must, "it's not all about the zombies, but also how to survive day-to-day" ... Absolutely. Sometimes it's all about those baffling, frustrating public pay phones.
