So, it turns out that the kid arrested for writing a Zombie story, didn't in fact include any zombies in the story. He did however, arrange to acquire stolen weapons and ammunition and write a scene describing people being shot. Then he lied to the press about the details. Thanks, William Poole for making me, and a lot of other people sensitive to free speech issues, feel like fucking tools. Now, the next time someone does have their creativity stifled unjustly, we'll have to work extra hard to justify our defense of them, all the while shouting, "I don't see any Zombies here!"
