Question And Answer Time

I saw this on the online version of the New York Times:

 

"From studying the Bible, we have come to the understanding, through God's mercy, that May 21, 2011 is the date of Christ's return. Knowing this, I ask you, would you continue business as usual?"

 

Abby H. Carson, MD

I don't know.  But I know someone who I will never go to as a doctor.

This slideshow, which mostly focuses on the Carson family, is particularly upsetting.  The parents are convinced the end of the world is tomorrow.  So the Maryland mom quits her job.  And the kids, who are the smart ones and think this is bullshit, are worried about not having money for college.  Yeah, I would too!

EGG ON MY FACE:  She's not a doctor; she's from Maryland.  Thanks commenters!

    It’s actually MD as in Maryland, not Medical Doctor. But yes, poor kids.

    Um, she’s not a doctor. She’s from Maryland (abbreviated “MD”). 🙂

What do you think?
