Quote of the week

Zombie apocalypse? Nothing so exciting, predicts Tam:

Every year, the shelves of America creak louder under ever-thickening volumes of federal, state and local laws and regulations, codes and ordinances. I’m telling you, while all the worrywarts are handwringing about the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland, it’s gonna be some law library in New Jersey that collapses into a singularity and destroys the planet…

I figure they’ll blame Chris Christie for not taxing that black hole when he had the chance.
