Well, as usual Pigdog Journal is lagging heavily in our
coverage of the Fabulous Burning Man. For all anybody
knows, we haven't been to the damn event in four years. But
we really do go, honest! We do cool stuff, too! People love
But anyhoo, in the absense of any original journalism on the subject by
Pigdoggers, I must turn to the parasitic media form known as the link. Which,
like, is LUCKY in this particular respect, because my dear, dear friend Dr.
Black has written a great article about this year's Burn for the formidable San
Francisco Bay Guardian.
What I like about this article is the clear description of what's wrong about
the event, and the decent and affectionate description of what's right. I think
there's some resignation by everybody in the Burning Man community about where
Burning Man is going. Is what we're doing right? Is it still worth it? Is it
worth it to *me*, in particular? These are all questions Burners ask themselves
all the time. I think. Well, hell, at least *I* do.
