1968 is Undead

Hello folks,
I'm back from honeymoon and yes, I'm officially married now. It feels good. Also, I'd like to point out that I hate the Phillies fans who were screaming and honking outside my window until 3AM last night.

In lighter news, let's talk about death.

Marco Lanzagorta has assembled a collection of 30 fantastic essays prepped for the 40th anniversary of George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead (including an intro by the man himself) and not only is this a fascinating compendium, but yours truly has an essay in it, published in today's segment.

1968 is Undead touches on the ways that we are "haunted" by the 1960s, even today (and this essay was written before Bill Ayers, a Weather Underground member turned college professor, became such a central figure behind John McCain's campaign).

Here's the rest of the feature. When you get a chance, you really should go through a check out a few or all of them.
