Where do people get off thinking the world will come to an end, they will be pneumatic-tubed to Heaven and all will be answered in their lifetimes? Then again, why not? What’s so special about any other coming time in Earth history that it cannot happen next week?
At any rate, I’m seriously tempted to stage a scene in this ‘hood that involves “vehicles left behind.” There is an East Asian church around the way. Wouldn’t it be funny if a whole bunch of empty cars with doors open suddenly filled its parking lot, the pastor showed up and I ran towards him screaming, “We non-whites were left behind! Nooooo!”
Guess only I think about these things. And find them amusing.
