Florida's Doomed, Left-Behind Anxiety, Etc...

The "Xanax Might Help, Holmes" Dept:

Recent global disasters are apparently causing apocalyptic anxiety amongst some Christian fringe groups in the US...

From the Indianapolis Star/Newsday:

Every morning, the Rev. Micheal Mitchell prays that if today is the beginning of the end of the world as we know it, he will be ready.

"Ever since the terrorist attacks four years ago, I try to live every day as if it will be the last day," said Mitchell, 46, senior pastor of New Life Tabernacle United Pentecostal Church in New York City's East Flatbush area...


The "God's Still Got a Sense of Humor" Dept:

Tampa Tribune columnist Steve Ott takes a look at the not-so-biblical signs that yes, Pat Robertson may indeed be right that the End Times are upon least when it comes to Tampa's museum district...

...Oh yeah, the signs were everywhere.

The art museum, which was going to transform downtown Tampa into an arts district, mysteriously vanished.

The red tide, which used to be more of an annoyance than anything else, refused to go away.

Politicians began speaking in strange tongues, and some of them appeared to be forked.

One started blathering something about needing to spend $40 million
for a sports complex while the rest of the county was wondering who
was going to fix the sewers....


The "Revelation Will Be Televised" Dept:

The Cleveland Plain Dealer unearthed this piece of apocalyptic entertainment news. Apparently, Sony wasn't expecting the latest film adaptation of the Left Behind series to be a big seller...

A new film, "Left Behind: World at War," from Sony Pictures, opens this weekend at more than a dozen area screens - television screens, that is.

By Sunday, the apocalyptic thriller will have shown at more than 130 Ohio churches and schools and some 3,000 throughout North America..

It's been too long...I saw you at Kofenya the other seemed to be in intense convo, so I let you be, plus I REALLY had to study...then called your name as you walked by my table...but you didn't hear me. I am not always in the mood to yell in public (Russia's rubbing off on me I guess)...oh well, it's been too long. Hope you are well!

Lata Gata!
