Burning man

Well, I'm convinced. More and more of the news in the blogs indicates that Bush and Cheney are going to take the US to war against Iran -- see this and this and this -- and there's nothing we can do to stop him and it will be a disaster for the United States and the Middle East and the world. And Bush is now so out of touch with reality that he can't even remember anymore that it was his administration which disbanded the Iraq army.
But, as Tony Soprano would say, what are ya gonna do.
Escapism, anyone? Here are some neat photos from this year's Burning Man festival in the Black Rock Desert in New Mexico :

Here's an interesting art piece, which is reflecting some of the festival participants as they ride past it. Below, more festival art.

The festival-goers are just as unique. Here is Dave the Troubadour, playing a flaming tuba.

You can see the "man" statue in this photo of the festival site during a sandstorm. The festival ended when they set it on fire on Saturday.
