Make that 4 pages now. And worth 40 more if even a shred of awareness gets out that prevents another repeat. 35 people gone. Many of them Burners at that, not that it makes much difference as a life is a life. Doesn't this hit anyone else square in the gut and generate a reaction? Damn, 35 lives sn...

Anyone notice the sign on the way in that said something like “The man is not smaller, you are bigger.” I think he was smaller and closer to the Esplinade to make room for the big blue head further out.

We were camped next to a couple of rangers that worked the burn and they told me the following.
