End of the World... again...
So here we are.  October 21.  The real, no-kidding-this-time, end of the world, according to Harold Camping.

Two and a half weeks after the world failed to end on May 21, Camping had a stroke, and his radio program has been off the air ever since.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.  [If I were religious, I'd think maybe God was trying to say something through Camping AFTER all...]

Even without his show, though, I notice we aren't hearing so much about the Rapture this time around.

Where are the billboards?  Where is the media coverage?

Stroke or no, Camping's still rich off the donations of his True Believers.  Why didn't he throw around tons of money to prepare us for the End of the World THIS time?  Doesn't he love us anymore?

[Greta Christina thinks maybe he's a little embarrassed after last time.  Ya think?]

Meanwhile, I'm waiting for a phone call sometime today, upon which time Angela and I will be heading down to the Title company to sign the papers to refinance our first and second mortgages into one, much lower interest mortgage, saving us $500/month and simultaneously shortening the time remaining on both.  We are very excited.

Though you'd think someone at Chase would have cancelled the whole thing by now.  Why bother?  End of the World, don'tcha know...

A sure sign of old age:

Getting really excited over a new mortgage!

Glad to hear about the mortgage!

Harold Camping's behavior (and the behavior of other self-labelled Christians towards him) bring up a lot of questions that call for a longer response from me. Must cogitate on this a while first.
