Zombies of Kentucky

I'm too tired to properly deal with this right now, but the unlikely agency of Ain't it Cool News brings to the attention of the internet a tale of zealousness and of paranoia run amok. Some high school kid writes a short story about zombies attacking a high school. He is therefore arrested and held on five thousand dollars bail. That's right, held. In jail. For writing a story.

You know, and I'm just talking out loud here, it'd be a really neat idea if the United States amended their constitution to, say, protect the freedom of the press, freedom of speech, the freedom of writers to write and artists to create. That'd be wonderful, and something I think the rest of the world could and should really look up to.

Oh ... hey, wait.
