Harold Camping in the Hospital, Stroke?

I'm looking to get this verified.  It's interesting how fast "news" travels as Wikipedia already includes  the fact that Camping's had a stroke.

Update: I listened to the entire Open forum for June 9, and did not notice anything odd. As of the posting of this entry, the link for the June 10 Open Forum was not posted.

Looking through news feeds, as of 2 pm Eastern Time, I haven't found any stories reporting this.

Hello Group,

Sorry to report that Mr. Camping suffered a stroke last night shortly after the Open Forum and is currently in a local hospital. I have no other details. Please just pray for him and do not try to contact anyone at his home or Family Radio. He and Shirley have enough family members to handle the situation. I'm sure we'll be able to publicly update everyone on Monday.

Meanwhile, tonight's Open Forum is a repeat from 1991 from my achieves and KFTL and WFME-TV is a repeat of a very recent program.

Once again, let's continue to pray for his swift recovery.

Hi Scott,

Thanks- but keep in mind I posted this entry before any of the news media reported anything on it. I was one of the first to mention it because I've been reading a Campingite forum.

Regards, James
