(BOISE) – The hours ticked by on Saturday as some Americans eagerly anticipated the rapture that never came. Around here, Gov. Butch Otter told reporters he was confident Idaho would be ready to face doomsday if it ever came. In the meantime, the followers of Harold Camping say they’re still optimistic that their pastor’s prophecy will come true. Camping says planet earth has until October 21 – when the world ends forever.
