LaCrosse Tribune, the paper of record in the city named after our national sport, reports that down the road in Iowa City the local gendarmes are investigating an early morning assault in which a man accused another of being a zombie, then punched him twice.
This happened a bit after 1 this morning and I suspect alcohol was involved. In a restaurant just off the University of Iowa campus a man was ordering food when he was approached by another man who called him a zombie, then hit him in the eye. When the victim tried to call police on his cell phone, the man punched him again, breaking his nose.
The man then ran out a back door and the other man went to the hospital.
