Life - Return of the Zombies

Interesting things I read in thegrauniad today, part 1.

Guardian Unlimited | The Guardian | Steven Wells: Zombies come back from the dead

Zombies are everywhere, in particular on Showtime in the US:

Homecoming - a made-for-TV movie where Americans killed in Iraq rise from their flag-draped coffins and slaughter their way to the polling booths so they can vote out a warmongering president. When the Republicans then steal the election, the disgusted dead of other wars also rise. The climax of the film sees a GI zombie army storming the White House.

Sounds cool. Rest of it is a short piece about the rise of zombiedom, which can only be classed as A Good Thing. Is that Steven Wells as in the NME's venerable old Seething Wells I wonder?
