After You've Gone

Harold Camping, an evangelical radio host who previously predicted the end times would happen in 1994 (well, Korn did release their debut album in 1994, so he gets half-credit), has, as you might have seen, updated his calendar. Now Camping is spreading the word—via the website—that the Rapture will come on May 21, 2011.

Wait a minute—the Rapture is happening on Fats Waller's birthday?

(The movie is 1936's King of Burlesque.)

I'm not much for this particular brand of Christian eschatology, but I must confess—Camping is my kind of conspiratorial numerologist.
