I don’t care much for what is called "reality TV."

A few observations from a columnist who, despite summer having officially begun just this past week, might have been out in the sun too long:
Might there be a real-life zombie apocalypse one day? Not likely, but then again, the way zombies have chomped their way into our pop culture the last several years, it's maybe a bit less implausible than it once was.
A popular graphic making the rounds on the Internet shows Boston Marathon bombing terrorist brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev with the caption: "Apparently Not Verizon Customers."

Flight attendants across the country are leading the charge — No knives on planes!
