And in today's news...

...an 18-year-old Kentucky student is sitting in prison on "terrorist' charges for writing a short story for English class in which zombies overrun a school. The police detective in the case, one Steven Caudill, apparently doesn't realize that the legions of the Undead aren't in fact actually real, and said "Anytime you make any threat or possess matter involving a school or function it's a felony in the state of Kentucky."

Were I of a more cynical mindset, I might suggest that nobody can actually be as sunningly stupid as Detective Caudill is claiming to be, and that it's more likely that Mr. Caudill is in fact cynically manipulating a fundamentally b0rked legal system to puff up his own personal fame. But I'm not really that cynical, of course; it's possible that Detective Caudill really is that stupid. After all, it wouldn't be the first time a police department deliberately sets out to weed intelligent people out of the force...
