Yee Wants Moon Base Feng Shui Compliant
(email to a friend)

SAN FRANCISCO, California - A group of California state legislators led by Leland Yee have written an open letter to President Bush asking him to have any moon or mars base plans reviewed for Feng Shui compliance. "People think Feng Shui is just a silly fad, but it is about the very fundamentals of energy flow. It is the culmination of thousands of years of human study. The principals should not be ignored," explained Yee.

Feng Shui -- from the Chinese words for wind and water -- deals with the design of a structure and the placement of objects within it to allow for a proper flow of energy. Its practitioners vary greatly in their opinions of what is good and what is bad, but it is generally accepted that the Northwest area should be kept free of sharp objects, flowers, and broken items.

Not all of California's legislature agree with the letter. "I've seen these guys work," said California state Senator Tom McClintock, "They walk around with their charts and their compasses, mumbling about dragons and energy and what not. A buncha hooey is what it is. And I got news for 'em. Their compasses won't work on the moon."

"Feng Shui is a highly misunderstood concept," said Feng Shui expert and master Charuhas Naik. "Its principles have been in use for 3,000 years. No, literal dragons are not tearing through your house. And no bad energies are going to disrupt life on any space station. But these principles are time honored, solid, and provide for a living space that it is well balanced for all involved."

The White House has not responded to the letter. Governor Schwarzenegger issued a statement saying only, "I am pleased to help govern a state as diverse as California, where many opinions can be brought to the fore and discussed. I may not agree with them all, but I support their discussion."
