In time for Halloween, the military put on a joint training exercise that features… a zombie attack. While I am amused to no end, I do respect the attempts by the government to get people interested in emergency preparedness by using zombies as a training tool. It’s just like what the CDC did not too long ago. And as Hurricane Sandy should be making apparent to everyone, some basic emergency preparedness is a good thing. I may get to spend some more time outside in the rain like I did for last year’s hurricane, trying to make sure people don’t drive into downed power lines. We’ll see.
