One of these things is not like the others: The Air Force Academy, Fort Carson, Focus on the Family, a sick zombie party. As Stephanie DeCamp observed in her write-up of Zombie Fest yesterday, Colorado Springs, our frothing neighbor to the south, is not exactly the most likely place punk-rock zombies -- and it's perhaps for that very reason that the event has been a resounding success. Whatever the case, at least a couple of readers are glad to see it.
As a former Springs-ian, it makes me super excited to see that something like this can thrive there. I can't wait for next year.
Carolyn Baker agrees:
This is quite refreshing to see. I definitely hope to participate next time around. Well done, well done indeed.
