A new Nevada sheriff tasked with overseeing the upcoming Burning Man festival plans to crack down on the annual desert debauchery.

A dirty job, but someone has to do it. /S
LOL! After a week on the playa with VERY limited bathing, it WILL be a dirty job. Have you seen some of the folks that attend? They ain’t all cait. :>}
Might be fun to go once. Yeah, it’s a freak show. But it’s about freedom too.
No more of a freak show than the power trippers in Washington DC is, if you think about it; the difference is, these folks aren’t hurting anyone.
I don’t understand the attraction. Hanging out in the hot desert sun with no shade and a bunch of smelly hippies for a week? AND having to pay for the privilege?
That is what the drugs are for.
I know more than a few Burners - your observation is all too true.
The Sheriff better start now ordering tens of thousands of pink jump suits, underwear, bologna, bread and erecting tent city jail facilities, he’s going to need them if he is serious.
The sheriff should just leave them alone. They aren’t hurting anyone other than maybe themselves. Let them get it out of their systems and go back to their lives.
After the Waco massacre I’m over sensitive to police overreach. If this is the way some people like to celebrate freedom then why should anyone stop them. It’s not like they are in downtown San Francisco riding around naked on bicycles or something in front of families with children on vacation.
“..Painting yourself blue and running around nude was ok.....”
I did that once... it didn’t turn out well.
The purple paint job with the white Rally Stripe wasn’t too bad though...
Well what’s the point, then?
