The only problem that I have (and share with Hot Air) about this excellent, official Center for Disease Control blog post about how the CDC would handle a zombie apocalypse is in the designation of Resident Evil as Best. Zombie Flick. EVAR. And that’s not even a fair problem, as I’ve never seen the film: I avoid movies made from video games, because in my experience they generally suck*. Besides, I am a Shaun of the Dead / 28 Days Later guy anyway.
Seriously, it’s a creative way to get a general disaster scenario checklist out there – so if you’re the sort to ask the question “Was this an appropriate use of taxpayer money?” on everything that the government does, right down to the molecular level, I’m going to say that the answer is ‘yes.’ Mind you, I’d say it even if the CDC just decided to riff off of a genre that has them taking a prominent (if ultimately futile) role in virtually every example of same. These people can have a little fun, surely.
*THE MASS EFFECT MOVIE IS A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THING ENTIRELY AND IF YOU THINK OTHERWISE THEN YOU SHOULD MAYBE NOT BE SUCH A HATER ABOUT IT.
