Hard as it may be to believe, a good portion of the world is focused not on Andrew Breitbart but on...Comic-Con in San Diego! And so, too, will this blog—in fact, I've lined up a special correspondent to cover the event who I pretty much guarantee will provide an unique perspective. Because he's a zombie. Long time readers of this blog will remember "Inbred Jed," the B-movie horror actor (and college buddy of mine) who I profiled in the Atlantic last year and again on the blog. Jed is on the scene in San Diego, lurching around and frightening small children, and he'll be filing a dispatch later today. He's also got a new movie in the works that I'm curious about. So be sure to check back later.
The US is particularly miserable at putting aside money for the future. Should we blame our paychecks or our psychology?
