Zombies will walk the streets of Houston.
No, we don't mean the Texans' secondary. Or the Astros' bullpen. Or the people who pick TUTS' musicals.
We mean actual zombies, walking...on behalf of the Houston Food Bank.
The Houston Zombie Walk is being organized by Amy Buresh, who expects 150 or so zombies to show up, donate some canned goods and walk from the Bookstop shopping center to downtown along Westheimer.
Scores of Zombies walking down Westeheimer? Won't that affect traffic?
"Its a sidewalk type thing," she tells Hair Balls. "We'll have one off duty police officer on a bike to help us obey all traffic laws. But to limit all the permit legalities, no streets. Just sidewalks."
Sounds like a polite bunch of zombies.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism.
