Regarding the zombie threat

Of the video clip we posted last Friday, Andy Butfoy writes:

Regarding the zombie threat:

  1. The existence of zombies is conceivable.
  2. Absence of proof is not proof of absence.
  3. The fact that the UN has not been able to eliminate the possibility that zombies exist is a worry. If we can’t prove they are not there, the only prudent course is to assume that they might well be there (or here).
  4. Questions of plausibility miss the point: history, and our children, will judge harshly those who were warned but failed to act.
  5. Zombies have an atrocious record stretching back to at least the 1950s, with periodical revivals since then.
  6. Since zombies are, conceivably,  there (or even here), it would be extreme negligence not to factor this into our security paradigms.

I think the reporter questioning President Bush underestimated the threat. For one thing, zombies aren't as slow-moving as they used to be.
