End-Of-World Cleric Camping, 92, RIP

In this May 19, 2011 file photo, Mose Macdonald works in the impound yard of Stealth Recovery and Towing in Eugene, Ore. near a billboard proclaiming the upcoming Saturday, May 21, 2011 as “Judgement Day.” An organization run by Harold Camping of Oakland, Calif., had purchased billboards all over the country proclaiming May 21 will mark the end of the world. Camping, who used his evangelical ministry and thousands of billboards to broadcast the end of the world and then gave up public prophecy when his date-specific doomsdays did not come to pass, has died at age 92. Camping died at his home Sunday, according to Family Radio Network marketing manager Nina Romero. She said he had been hospitalized after falling. (AP Photo/The Register-Guard, Chris Pietsch)
