An Election Day Diversion – Zombies

As we end this intense election season, I thought I would post about something more pleasant…a zombie massacre.

If you have not already watched this CBS news clip about best friends Sam and Mattie (who happen to have Down Syndrome), I encourage you to do so.  Sam and Mattie wrote, raised $70,000, and starred in Spring Break Zombie Massacre. While I hate horror movies (and this appears to be solidly in that genre), I found this news segment to be absolutely delightful.

And if you need a further diversion from election news, I encourage you to watch the interview below that Sam and Mattie did this summer on Conan O’Brien. It’s beautifully uplifting and normal.
