Airport of the Dead

Returning from the shoot of his most recent movie, Zombieland, Woody Harrelson had an altercation with a TMZ cameraman. In defense of his actions, he said the following:

"With my daughter at the airport I was startled by a paparazzo, who I quite understandably mistook for a zombie."

Either still in character, or socially observant, Harrelson is breaking ground in an area of law with little to no precedent. We've all seen zombie movies; we know how they swarm and infect, topple and rise, how where they once hobbled like old people they now leap and climb like rabid Spider-Men.

If you aim to survive you will inevitably have to re-kill at least a dozen of them by entirely destroying their headspace, and in doing so the motivation will be self-defense, not to mention it's the second murder sustained by the corpse-in-question. Woody is right to guide our law towards the inexplicable and unexpected emergency, and pointing out the gross oversight of our lawmakers and founders.

However this is not the 1970s, and the Obama America is a more tolerant place. Thus does Woody meet his downfall as we enter a new political age.

The era of Zombie's Rights.
