The End of the World News

End of the World News

In case you missed it: Experts have determined that, despite the forecasts of evangelical prophet Harold Camping, the world has not ended. You can be sure that fundamentalist ranting has not, either.

Note: The End of the World News is the title of a novel by Anthony Burgess (1917 – 1993). He was inspired by the closing formula solemnly intoned by BBC radio newsreaders: “This is the end of the World News.”
