Are your bags packed?

It's the end of the world as we know it: Harold Camping, president of the Christian radio website, Family Radio, has determined that Judgement Day is Saturday. Herald columnist Julie Muhlstein talks with two Everett men of faith about the end times.

The Buzz is hedging his bets. We've paid our bills just in case this isn't the end, but we helped ourselves to a second piece of rhubarb pie assuming it is.


No, we're not talking about Meat Loaf or Gary Busey: The field of prospective Republican presidential candidates narrowed this week with the announcements that neither Mike Huckabee nor Donald Trump will run.

Huckabee, an evangelical Christian, obviously got word about Saturday's Rapture from a highly placed source. Trump, no doubt, also is relying on inside information, but we're pretty sure it's from friends in low places.


You've been warned: A nonprofit group has named five finalists for its Wacky Warning Labels contest, actual warnings put on products by lawsuit-wary companies. Among the finalists: "Pen cap can obstruct breathing if swallowed;" and "Dust mask does not supply oxygen."

Falling short as a finalist was the warning buried on the Family Radio website: "This Armageddon prediction is for fear-mongering purposes only."
