Would you like to join the living dead in a walk through Downtown Lodi? OK, how about dancing like Michael Jackson did on his “Thriller” video? Friday is the night, when paranormal enthusiast Tom Presler will lead a zombie walk through Downtown.

“Everyone who comes out to Downtown Lodi on the 29th, whether as participants or spectators, will have a load of fun,” said Presler, who lives in Lodi.

    Seeing Doug's critical criticism of the event, I am honestly asking what the difference is between someone who drinks too much wine and too much beer? Both contain alcohol, as far as I know.

    To get back on subject, this isn't going to be a typical Friday Night Drunken Party, sure there is a bar offering a discount for the zombies, but that's after the main family event, which is the zombie walk. Money will be going to the local economy on this evening, from the event, which will help towards keeping our city above the negative.

    When Hutchins Street Square stopped their "Haunted Hutchins" productions, I was devastated since it was the only "known" haunted house in town, along with other family friendly activities. Seeing that the Umbrella Shack is trying to bring family fun to this town, I say go for it.

    Remember, its not just wine drinkers tourists we should be catering to, we should also be catering to family tourists as well, along with families in the town. If we don't have more family fun events, we're not going to improve the local economy here.

    Doug, I am so sorry that a charitable event to benefit servicemen offends you. I thought it was just a fun way to do something good. Your elegant and in no way stupid response has shown me the error of my thinking. By the way, I've had quite a laugh reading your recent posts. I appreciate a man who is not afraid to show the world what a petty, narrow-mined and ill-informed cretin he is. In terms of your writing style, I would suggest an emphasis on economy of phrasing. Seriously, I've read Russian novels that were shorter and more coherant. In terms of our town, we could do better, but we could also do a lot worse. A quick drive down 99 would show you that, but it doesn't seem like reason and empathy are your strong suits.

    I'm attending this event, this is something truly awesome, and I hope that this is a continuing tradition for the City of Lodi, a family fun haunting. :D Hope to see many out there!!

    Just another Friday night downtown drunken party. No wonder no tourists come to this God-forsaken, pathetic little town.
