More on Zombies

Typical Truewit, always on the cutting edge of modern, and early modern, culture. From today's NY Times:
ONCE again, they're everywhere.
We're talking of course about zombies. If you haven't been paying attention — and if you haven't been paying attention, heaven help you — zombies are back. In films, books and video games, the undead are once again on the march, elbowing past werewolves, vampires, swamp things and mummies to become the post-millennial ghoul of the moment.
Heaven help you, indeed. So how did RSA end? Did the zombies win?

(The image to the right is how I'm currently imagining Yalies and their ilk. I'll also note, without further comment, that our academic zombie is sporting a wedding band.)
