Thank you Adam! I agree that you raise a vexing issue---how do we count them for tax and other purposes, such as the census? I worry they will be used as another basis to curb immigration reform efforts. While they may have been among us, as arguably new beings, they may now be considered unwanted new residents amongst us?

For whatever, its worth, my wife is convinced my next book will draw parallels between the Zombie fad and immigration reform. I think she is on to something. Any and all suggested titles are more than welcome.

Peace (or shall I say: Rest in Peace?).
