I Guess They Got Lucky This Time

You might say the Chronicle pulled a "Truman Defeats Dewey" with its Sunday editorial section today. It put Harold Camping — the Oakland minister who predicted the May 21 doomsday — in its "Bad Week" column (even though this section was put to bed long before the 6 p.m. Rapture was supposed to happen).

They must have felt pretty confident he'd be wrong.

If things had gone differently, I could imagine Camping holding the Chronicle up Truman-style.

As it is, he's holed up in his house, refusing to answer the door.

Oh well.

UPDATE: Looks like Camping is talking now.
