Zombie Speaks! Shortly after witnessing the debacle outside the gates of San Quentin during Tookie Williams’ much deserved execution in February, I dusted off Tom Wolfe’s meme from The Right Stuff of the press as a hypocritical Victorian Gentleman and wrote:

To easily see the Victorian Gentlemanly style in action, pick up a copy of a paper like the San Francisco Chronicle. (Or scroll through their Website of course, but it’s even more obvious “on dead tree”.) Read their coverage, of say, the protests outside the gates of San Quentin during Tookie Williams’ execution. Then peruse the photos of the same event at Zombietime.

I’m not sure if in the strictest definition, Zombietime is actually a blog, but it’s very easy to say that Zombietime is one of the great additions to the Blogosphere. Its proprietor is interviewed here. Needless to say, read the whole thing.
