Russian Astrologer Sues NASA for Deep Impact

From the please tell me this is just a joke department, we get this story at  The first paragraph reads:

MOSCOW, Russia (Reuters) -- A Russian astrologist who says NASA has altered her horoscope by crashing a spacecraft into a comet is suing the U.S. space agency for damages of $300 million, local media has reported.

Even in the U.S., I wouldn't expect a case this stupid to go far, and I doubt that the Russian courts are more tolerant of utterly frivolous suits than ours, but the fact that it could be reported at all as "astrologer is suing", rather than as "astrologer and lawyer arrested for wasting court's time and trying to make court look stupid" is a sad commentary on our (global) society.
