Happy (Short?) New Year!

Happy New Year, everyone. I love this time of year. You start a fresh new calendar, and everything seems possible. Resolutions are made and, hopefully, the soil is loose enough for them to take root. New goals to achieve, personal records to break, and new persons (kinder? more patient and tolerant? more willing to help?) to become.

Leave it to people like Marie Exley and Harold Camping to burst my bubble. Based on Camping’s reading of the Bible, they and the rest of Family Radio Worldwide are convinced that the Judgement Day is soon to be upon us:

“Beyond the shadow of a doubt, May 21 will be the date of the Rapture and the day of judgment.” – Harold Camping

Believers will go to heaven on that day, and the rest of us will be left down here on Earth in torment until October when the leaves change the end of time comes.
