Ottawa Sun | 23May2011 | Orest Slepokura


Well, May 21, 2011 came and went without the world ending. Harold Camping, the pastor who predicted the Rapture of the faithful -- in which believers are to be lifted up to a heavenly reward leaving behind all of their worldly goods -- together with major global cataclysms, is still here with us. His followers, no doubt, are bitterly disappointed the devoutly wished-for event failed to materialize. In this, they’re not alone. I refer to the driver of the old jalopy with the bumper sticker that read, Can I Have Your Car After The Rapture?
