I found this to be a little too convenient:

"Come the millennium, month 12, In the home of greatest power, the village idiot will come forth to be acclaimed the leader." -
Nostradamus, 1555

I got this one this morning. I was going to post it to see if any Nostradamus fans knew if it is from his writings. I find it a little hard to believe too.

Oooops, see what happens when you don't check "Currently Circulating" and "What's New" every day.

Thanks,

Hmm, so a "village idiot" will come to power in December of 2001? I wonder who that'll be?

I guess the educationally-challenged author of this "authentic" piece of work didn't give much thought to when the millenium actually begins.
