New zombie walk world record set in Grand Rapids, MI last night.

October 31, 2008

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A world record number of zombies came to Rosa Parks Circle in Grand Rapids Thursday night.

An estimated 2,000 people dressed up in their best ghoulish costume and broke the mark for largest zombie walk.

They also donated 8,000 cans of food for the Second Harvest Gleaners Food Bank of West Michigan – 5,000 by participants and 3,000 by Meijer stores.

Organizer Rob Bliss spread the word with the help of Facebook.com.

The old record – 1,028 zombies – was set last year at the Monroeville Mall in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

This is pretty sweet.  From my understanding, the cops never blocked off the streets, so ghouls were marauding through regular traffic.

Even dead people are leaving Detroit

Even Dead People Are Fleeing Detroit

You know it’s bad when corpses can’t even handle being (not being?) in Detroit.

From today’s WSJ:

Where Have All the Graveyards Gone?
Decades ago, Detroit started experiencing white flight. Then blacks started fleeing too. Now, the Detroit News reports, Departed-Americans are departing–which is to say, their remains no longer remain:

From 2002 through 2007, the remains of about 1,000 people have been disinterred and moved out of the city, according to permits stored in metal filing cabinets in the city’s department of health. Looked at in another way, for about every 30 living human beings who leave Detroit, one dead human being follows.

The paper adds, “Although there is little information or statistical evidence regarding the phenomenon across the country, it is quite likely that Detroit and its surrounding communities lead the way, as it does in population loss among the living.” Of course, some places make it more complicated for the dead to leave. For instance, in Chicago, they have to register to vote at their new address.

I have a weird fascination with zombies. Now a clown garden scultpure…..well, that’s just not even fun to imagine.
