Apocalypse on Fox 9

There will be a story on Fox 9 news, the local Fox affiliate in the Twin Cities, on recent disasters, claims that the end will occur on May 21, 2011 (with the final end on October 11, 2011), and apocalyptic thought in relation to these events and claims. The reporter on the story, Tom Lyden, interviewed me for the story, although I have not seen it in advance. I did, however, enjoy talking to Tom, which we did for some time, regarding ancient apocalyptic thought and modern attraction to this thought, so if you are in the Twin Cities, it will air on the 9:00 pm news and if you are not in the Twin Cities, you might be able to track it down on their website after the news airs.
