Mexican pyramid ceremony cancelled

No sooner do I post something....when it gets cancelled.
Yahoo cancelled plans for a "time capsule" ceremony at pyramids in Mexico, citing concerns regarding possible damage to the ancient site....The Sunnyvale, California, online search engine had planned a time capsule event at the Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan, about 40 kilometers (25 miles) from Mexico City, later this month. Yahoo said the decision to cancel the ceremony came as it worked with Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) to ensure that the pyramids in Teotihuacan would be "respected and not adversely affected." "The position of INAH is that after evaluating all the technical and operational aspects, it would be very difficult to move forward with this endeavor," Yahoo said in a release.
Well, it's great they were concerned. And they did focus attention on the site and Mexican pre-history. So I'll still call it a positive. No damage, good publicity.
