Still Here

Saturday evening's rapture did not take place.  We're still here.

While it would be very easy to have some laughs over this, it's not nice to make fun of someone's religion, so I won't.

The "impending rapture" thing was put forth by a man who runs an organization called "Family Radio."  On one hand, using the public airwaves to spread this stuff might be viewed as irresponsible, reckless, and silly.

On the other, this is America.  We do have freedom of speech, and as long as all laws are being followed, I'm okay with the whole thing.

The Federal Communications Commission has a rule against broadcasting a "hoax."  I'll let the legal experts determine if Family Radio's broadcasts fall under that rule.

Isn't it amazing how rapidly the impending rapture took off in the media and in the public?  A lot of people either took it very seriously, or were amused by the whole thing.

I'll see you today, tomorrow, and for many days to come.
