Last October, at the height of the ghost and goblin season, Michael made a harsh declaration about zombies. The walking dead were not only un-scary. They were un-interesting.

He wasn't alone in hoping that all the talk about zombies at Halloween would disappear as quickly as candy from a kid's loot bag. To his alarm, the zombie situation is more "grave" than he realized.  In fact one of The Sunday Edition's own - Frank Faulk - has turned. 

This is not a sign that a zombie apocalypse is upon us. Frank has not developed an appetite for brains or human flesh. But like countless others, Frank now has a desire to devour all things zombie. And having feasted well, he's discovered something surprising: these shambling, rambling hoards of monsters have a lot to tell us about ourselves - even if it's not all appetizing. 

Frank's documentary is called Zombie in the Mirror.
