    Ok listening to WND gave me a thought. Tanya mentions a lot of trouble was gone through to get hold of her powerful antibiotics. I believe it means both the trouble to get out of the colony and the trouble the colony had in originally getting the medicine.
    Where would you get such drugs? A hospital! In chapter 17 Skittles warns Angel and Kalani to stay away from Hospitals or the "doctor's places" as he calls them, because Doctors are SMART! Thus they become smart zombies by Burt's logic

    I highly doubt it, it takes a lot of training to be fixed wing certified, and going over to rotary wing takes a little longer. So, I don't think he'd even know how to take off in a helicopter, let alone fly it. Aside from that, they're noisy - really noisy, which'll bring unwanted attention to them.

    Edward's AFB will have transport sized aircraft like a C-130's or larger.
    They can also grab a couple semi and rig them with cow catchers to move stuff if needed.
    That is true with the stuff - but they also have too many people to ferry. Let's say you cram (it'll be like sardines) 20 people into a Blackhawk, doing a rough guess, Ft Irwin is roughly 100mi from the tower, which means it would take about a 40 min flight. Problem is you'll be hard pressed to find a LZ in an urban environment like LA to put it down. Then you have time against you, because figure the moment that you touch down, you'll be bring everyone one in the area to the tower, and they'll probably be attacked while the helicopter is outbound.

    With that being said, the units at Ft. Irwin are armored Cav and Recon, so there's bound to be some Humvees and Prime Movers that can be convoyed to and from the tower in just one trip.

    I hadn't even thought about doctors becoming smart zombies, but it makes sense.
    Plus there's also the fact that when outbreak started and people started panicking many of them probably headed for the hospitals to treat injuries or if they were sick and turning (we know that turning times vary: some are near instantaneous, Tommy took a little while to turn, and Tanya revealed some people can take days or weeks to turn.) And of course once those people turned all those panicky people in the hospitals became an all you can eat buffet. End result: hospitals = BAD news! So it probably took a fairly large effort by the Colony to assault one to get meds as powerful as the ones Tanya used to treat Saul. At least that's how I interpreted the "it was a lot of trouble to get these" comment.

    I thought this had already been established pretty clearly way back when angel and Saul went to raid burrs store. The one hunting Burt was a top clearance scientist from radon labs. And Burt says "I guess the matter u are in life the smarter u are in death". Scinetifically accurate and tested? No but usually The story expects you to just go along wih some facts

    I had an image of him being half black, half Latino.

    Oh no, I totally believe the smart people=smart zombies since I listened to Chapter 3 the first time. Really I was just covering my tracks in case someone who is the opposite of you came along and was all like, "It was just a theory of Burt's, we don't know for SURE..." and blah blah blah. Hospitals, libraries, universities, and scientific facilities would all be death traps due to all of the smart people

    Yeah it's more than likely there's going to be some death especially with the addition of other characters into the fold. I would vote for sauls mom to go because that voice actor...wow I can't stand her line readings.

    WAIT, WHAT?! Saul's black? Could somebody let me know when was that disclosed (reference/link)? Yeah Tanya does sound black to me, but I thought Saul was Latino... maybe Puerto Rican? Reading that made my head feel like that Klan member's on Chapelle's Show after Clayton Bigsby took his hood off.
