How local is the slur, "zombie" = homeless person/addict

I moved to a new area (just outside the Bay Area, California) and encountered a new er unflattering euphemism for homeless people or addicts — zombie. I'd never heard this before. I'm wondering if it's local flavor. Have you heard this, other places? [more inside]

Help With Zombie Makeup, But Not Really Gross Zombie Makeup

So, my kid wants to be a zombie for Halloween. Fine. But stuff that is too scary gives him nightmares. I do not think he can deal with most of the zombie masks you can find in costume stores. And also I don't want to scare the little kids that will be at the places we are going. [more inside]

Does anybody recognize this comic panel?

A Facebook friend posted this comic panel on my wall tonight. It's three skull-headed characters in green jackets, walking away from what looks like an apartment or factory on fire. The middle zombie is saying "Hurry! We must burn more buildings!!" I am dying to find out where it is from, but my search-fu has failed to turn up anything more than the single panel, with no further information. Any clues, anybody?

What was this foreign-language horror film called?

Zombies outside hospital; man and woman inside; man is infected and slowly turning; woman must decide when to kill him. Those are the vague details because I never saw this movie but I remember reading reviews and wanting to see it. I think the title was one word & I think it was a spanish-language film. [more inside]

Applying for a credit card with bank I stiffed 20 years ago.

So when I was in college I ran up a $700 credit card debt with Citibank visa. Then I didn't pay it. And for over a decade my credit was crap. But eventually I turned it around and have good credit again. So here's my question: I need to get a credit card for one of the biggest hotel chains as I stay there for business a bit. I'd like the benefits and points maximizing. Problem: the best card is run through citibank. Since my teenage folly I've changed my name but I still have the same SS#. Will applying today reactivate the debt with them?
