Science Ponders 'Zombie Attack'

I'm glad scientists are focusing their attention where it belongs -- on the hunt for the living dead. Researchers in Canada have been studying a zombie attack and have concluded that we are doomed unless we strike the zombies hard and fast. It's a little more serious than it sounds. Professor Neil Ferguson, a UK science advisor, says the study has parallels with the spread of some infectious diseases, and adds...
"The paper considers something that many of us have worried about - particularly in our younger days - of what would be a feasible way of tackling an outbreak of a rapidly spreading zombie infection.

"My understanding of zombie biology is that if you manage to decapitate a zombie then it's dead forever. So perhaps they are being a little over-pessimistic when they conclude that zombies might take over a city in three or four days."
Sounds like a Quote of the Day, especially that last paragraph.
