Mayan ruins to be 'cleansed' after Bush visit

This is from

Mayan Indian leaders have vowed to "spiritually cleanse" an ancient site in Guatemala after U.S. President George W. Bush visits during his seven-day, five-nation tour of Latin America.

Bush's visit to the ruins at Iximche, a one-time capital of a Mayan group, is part of an effort to show the administration is interested in all its neighbors in the hemisphere.

But many Mayans are angry that Bush is visiting Iximche, founded as the capital of the Kaqchiqueles kingdom before the Spanish conquest in 1524.

Mayan priests say they will purify the sacred archaeological site to rid it of any "bad spirits" after Bush is there.

I don't know about spiritual cleansing, but cleansing an area after a BushCo visit is a great idea. The less this group leaves behind, the better. Everyone should run out and get a jug of Clorox and a mop - just in case BushCo comes a' callin'.
