What was awesome about that story was the guy is a huge zombie and sci-fi guy, so he did it purposely to get the word about "being prepared" out there. He knew everyone would forward it because it had zombies and CDC in the same article.
So the guy's boss calls him in and he is like "What the hell?" and the guy explains himself and the boss backs him 100% and says it was a smart move.
Got to love a couple of guys with a sense of humor.
