World To End Tomorrow, Women and Minorities Hardest Hit
Boy are these kids going to be laughing at their parents
The Haddad children of Middletown, Md., have a lot on their minds: school projects, SATs, weekend parties. And parents who believe the earth will begin to self-destruct on Saturday.
Thousands of people around the country have spent the last few days taking to the streets and saying final goodbyes before Saturday, Judgment Day, when they expect to be absorbed into heaven in a process known as the rapture. Nonbelievers, they hold, will be left behind to perish along with the world over the next five months.
It does raise the opportunity for some awesome pranks. The kids could tell their parents that a couple of heathen families down the block did disappear on Saturday; looks like Mom and Dad are going to be "Left Behind".
