World: Governing by Astrology?

11.21.05 - The following item appeared on today:

Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra has said he will not answer reporters' questions until next year because the alignment of the planets is not in his favor.
"Right now Mercury ... is in a corner perfectly aligned with my star. Mercury is no good, so if it's not good, I am going to request not to speak. I'll just wait until next year to talk," Thaksin told reporters...

Is this dude for real? How can you run a government like this? The moon of Jupiter is aligned with Saturn: Let's go to war. Pluto's alignment with Mars is inexact: Let's raise taxes.

He probably tells his wife, "Not tonight, honey. Neptune is out of whack this month."

Let's hope the dude is not developing WMDs in his backyard, or we are all toast.
