This nice kid at work, who knows I'm an atheist, came up to me the other night, a little freaked out.
"Rudy is f-ing nuts!", he tells me.
Rudy had been talking to Kid about The End Times; how it's happening
right now (just look at the news!) and the anti-christ, who will come
from England, is roaming the world right now. The End is near. Rudy
says he's preparing with prayer and penance. Penance! Like his job
isn't punishment enough! I wonder what else he does for penance?
is a soft-spoken man, kind and respectful. He speaks several languages.
He's a painter who's pointillism works have shown in local galleries.
He makes wine and is planning a trip to France to study wine making. I
kind of admired the guy. But now I feel sad for him, knowing what a
burden he carries. The End Of The World! Poor Rudy.
