Zombie fiction: illegal in Kentucky. Answered

A Kentucky student has been arrested under anti-terrorist legislation

Winchester police say William Poole, 18, was taken into custody Tuesday morning. Investigators say they discovered materials at Poole's home that outline possible acts of violence aimed at students, teachers, and police.

Poole told LEX 18 that the whole incident is a big misunderstanding. He claims that what his grandparents found in his journal and turned into police was a short story he wrote for English class.

"My story is based on fiction," said Poole, who faces a second-degree felony terrorist threatening charge. "It's a fake story. I made it up. I've been working on one of my short stories, (and) the short story they found was about zombies. Yes, it did say a high school. It was about a high school over ran by zombies."

I originally found this story through Groxx. The article is here, and if you want to pass comments on to the relevant people, their contact details are here.

There's the one little thing I love about Texas - We can legally secede from the Union at any time...

Yup - When the Republic of Texas joined the U.S., we reserved the right to secede at any time.

That last paragraph explains why college tuition was once so inexpensive for state universities in Texas...

Quote from that wiki article:

This also means that the state government has control over oil reserves which were later used to fund the state's public university system through the Permanent University Fund

What do you have against state subsidies for education? Most states do it... Texas is (or was) one of the cheapest.

I admit it seems a little unfair to the rest of us...

That story almost sounds like a comedy. A high school over run by zombies....
