French authorities have pleaded with New Age fanatics, sightseers and media crews not to converge on the tiny village some believe will be one of the few places spared when the world supposedly ends on December 21, 2012. 'I am making an appeal to the world -- do not come to Bugarach,' said mayor Jean-Pierre Delord two days ago, echoing calls from regional officials who noted that police will from Wednesday block access to the southwestern village of 200 residents.
