That's been my reaction to it.  I remember Harold when he said the same
thing, and openly mocked the "false prophets" who deceived their audiences
and readers by claiming to know the day and the hour.  That was back in the
'70s before he became an amateur numerologist.  Also before he forgot all
the maths he learned as an engineer.  It's sad to see someone turn into the
thing he was so diligent to warn against.
