The famous Mayan Calender stone reacts to a bad spirit

Kinich Ahau, the Mayan sun god, is displeased but Yum Cimil, Mayan God of death, has mixed feelings and according to the Associated Press:

That a person like (Bush)… is going to walk in our sacred lands, is an offense for the Mayan people and their culture," Juan Tiney, the director of a Mayan nongovernmental organization with close ties to Mayan religious and political leaders, said Thursday…On Monday morning he is scheduled to visit the archaeological site Iximche on the high western plateau in a region of the Central American country populated mostly by Mayans.
Tiney said the "spirit guides of the Mayan community" decided it would be necessary to cleanse the sacred site of "bad spirits" after Bush's visit so that their ancestors could rest in peace.

President number 44, Christian, Mormon or Mayan should take note.
