Should I Save the Date?

I had read about it....and now they have reached downtown Binghamton.

Major networks have reported about this.

Billboards have sprung up in many cities warning about it.

It is almost the day of judgment, and the announcement has reached downtown Binghamton.  Yes, the caravan of brightly painted RV's, announcing the end of the world on 5/21 of this year, has arrived.

About 10:30 this morning I was in a meeting, facing a window looking at a particular intersection, and I was amazed to see a fleet of what I thought were painted delivery vans (they were RV's) going down the street.  Their message?  The World was ending!  The date was May 21!  It wasn't going to be 2012 but 2011! The Bible guaranteed it!

At one point a woman exited one of the vehicles, took up residence in front of an office building, and started to hand out leaflets.

My spouse saw three of the vehicles in another part of the city later in the day.

Of course, only time will tell if this latest calculation is correct. But it would be a waste of time to point out all the other times people have been wrong about "the end".  After all, as investment companies like to say "Past performance is not indicative of future results." 

But interestingly....our local paper's website didn't have anything at all to say about the visit.
