Doomsday radio preacher hospitalized with stroke

Harold Camping, the radio preacher who had warned that the world would end on May 21, has been hospitalized after suffering a stroke, The Oakland Tribune reports.

Camping, 89, founder of the Family Radio network that he used to spread his Doomsday prediction, was taken by ambulance from his home in Alameda, Calif., The Tribune reports, quoting a neighbor.

The unidentified neighbor told the newspaper that Camping had a stroke on his right side last Thursday.

After Camping's Judgment Day prediction did not come true, he revised his prediction, saying the end would now come to an end on Oct. 21.

I'm not surprised. I can't think of very many things more stressful that a failed EOTWAWKI prediction.

I take it he doesn't feel fine?

If he dies on June 21, then his world as he knows it is ended and he would only be off by a month.
