Department of silver linings

With all the terrible news out of Asia this week, at least some folks are looking on the bright side: Finally, we get to meet Jesus in person! Yep, my traffic reports show a spike in Google searches for tsunami AND end times leading the prophetic and insensitive to my 1998 Playboy article about Christian apocalyptic thrillers (a genre since made even bigger by the Left Behind series), in which big water features prominently as a sign of the impending Tribulation. Though for marketing purposes, it's usually California that gets swamped in the books; I mean you can't have a bunch of foreigners as your Christian heroes, can you?
