Reference: House sites narrowed down to two, Bangkok Post, July 5, 2008
Ten sites were proposed for Thailand's new Parliament building and and two of these sites have been selected for final deliberation entirely on rational grounds (House sites narrowed down to two, Bangkok Post, July 5, 2008). Not only that, the two sites still under consideration are being compared strictly on the basis of cost, benefit, logistics, and utility. Incredibly, the entire selection process has proceeded with reason and pragmatism and without the use of astrology, feng shui, fortune tellers, black magic, or voodoo. The nation and the government deserve credit for this singular achievement.
