I'm always interested in folks who examine the public policy implications of vampires existing. One thing that a surprisingly detailed post didn't mention is the legal status of vampires as undead. So much law makes implicit assumptions about what happens when your heart stops beating and you die. Imagine a world in which it is possible for folks to become undead: does inheritance still function if dad has been embraced, since, after all, his heart is no longer beating? Or do we have to have other criteria for "death?"

There's some fun sort of speculative fiction to be written by someone other than me.

perhaps more of the baby boomer politicians might decide to retire before they die.
