So a 24/7 whorehouse is cool, but a week-long gathering of artists is verboten.

Amazing logic. Just says to me BM refused to grease all the right palms.


You are completely misunderstanding this case. Burning Man is not being accused of anything. Burning Man is the plaintiff, they sued Pershing County over an increase in fees.

Nope. I understand it well. I've read the pleadings.

The giggle is in the judges backtrail. He has previously accused Burning Man of being a source of moral corruption. Hence my post.
