Warming Up After a Hiatus Caused by Many Things Personal and Professional

Saturday, November 6th, 2010

So, the first step after a long delay:

A plethora of cop shows! A plethora of Zombie movies! And now a Zombie TV special, The Walking Dead (which stole some “stuff” from 28 Days Later), on AMC. Harbingers of things to come after the mid term elections?!?

Are the Zombies avatars for Americans who don’t vote? Don’t get involved? So desensitized that all they can do is trudge? Have succumbed? Are the surfeit of cop shows an echo of authoritarian palpitations in the nation’s psyche?

Will have to revisit this.
