Salt Lake City: Beware the coming zombie attack

More at the Salt Lake Tribune

It started as insightful and articulate, especially compared to most public-comment hokum. Georgia transplant Wesley Wyndham-Price calmly stood before the [Salt Lake] City Council, cautioning members about downtown’s derelict emergency-preparedness plan. City elders are “insouciantly” unaware of risks to City Creek Center, he warned.

Wyndham-Price even paused to joke that Georgia’s saltwater taffy is better than Utah’s. “I hope that is not an ad hominem,” he shrugged. Then he got specific and all reason helicoptered into the ether. City Creek needs an emergency-preparedness plan, he demanded, against zombies.

“Zombies are fierce,” he said as a crammed council chamber laughed nervously. “They are going to catch us in there.” Wyndham-Price admitted he never has seen a zombie attack but is sure one is coming.
