It was suggested that zombies be the subject of the video of the day through the week (or beyond, perhaps) by a reader. I agreed. If you have a video you wish to submit for Video of the Day, please email me with the YouTube URL for the video, and I shall consider it for inclusion here. The video must meet one simple criterion: It must address zombies in some fashion. As you will see from the video submitted by Cap'n Jack and linked here as the Video of the Day, the reference to zombies need not be specifically to flesh-eating creatures! I eagerly await your submissions! - David
