Poor judgment (and language) about Judgment Day

An NPR commentator on May 12, about 4:20 PM EDT:  "So far, prophets
of the End Times have batted zero."

Someone (not a CNN announcer) shown on CNN Headline News May 21 about
11:40 AM EDT:  "When somebody tries to predict an exact date, they're
usually wrong" [because the Bible doesn't make an exact prediction].

I'm still waiting for CNN-HN to tell me the names of those rare and
excellent predictors who've been right.

Joel, cowering in his nuclear bunker, but hoping it's impenetrable to lowering.
