Trump cancels Burning Man 2017

Post by peace » Sun Feb 05, 2017 3:28 pm

Heard this rumor last week and in retrospect I'm surprised it took as long as it did. Of course we thought that the next logical step, should this happen, would be to have Burning Man on the National Mall this year. Being the first burn without a lottery for about ten years, I figure attendance should blow the Women's March away. The heat will be worse but could a break from the dust anyway. Seems to me the mall with some flame throwin' art cars, fire dances- even let David build his goddamn temple in front of Lincoln Memorial- could be some good times.

Between going to a burn anywhere near Donald Trump's house, and having a nice long root canal, I'll take the surgical procedure every time. Laughing gas optional.

In all seriousness, this year we held our second burn on the National Mall entitled Catharsis.

The fire marshal was concerned about having too big a burn so soon after the election :mrgreen:

I am totally surprised that the Trumper didn't take credit for it being so big, I mean massive!
