Zombie Welfare

In Chapter 20 of Economics of the Undead, the Phillips clan use the “graveyard vote” to investigate where the undead reside in the United States. If there’s any doubt as to the reliability of that method, perhaps they could replicate the study using zombie welfare recipients instead of graveyard voters. There’s also an intriguing question as to whether these zombies on welfare are welfare cheats, as everyone seems to assume, or if they’re just zombies who have fallen on hard times and need a helping hand.

Incidentally, this article appears in the Pennsylvania Independent, whose URL looks like “pain dependent.” I’m just saying.
