Well, “Judgment Day” came and went as expected. Pretty much an ordinary start to a long holiday weekend. It rained here but was completely absent of any cataclysmic worldwide earthquakes or the sort of chaotic events that might have resulted from bus drivers and airline pilots being suddenly raptured to Heaven or any number of other cinematically cool, destructive scenarios one might have imaginatively fantasized about. Oh well. Maybe next time.
Howard Camping, the former civil engineer who heads the Family Radio Network of Christian stations that profited handsomely from this multi-million dollar scam is presumably still alive… even though he’s 89 years old and could therefore, actuarially speaking, be dead at any moment. For now though, he’s just not currently taking calls. God also couldn’t be reached for comment.
