Moxie made it to the front page of Snuzzy, a Dogster/Catster property that is all about cute animal pictures. We don’t give Moxie much dairy (hello, fart city!) but do allow her to lick out empty yogurt and cottage cheese containers. My dog when I was growing up was called Sassy and she had a similar talent for getting ice cream out of tall sundae dishes, or any dishes really.
Anyway, check it out.
More than the health care debate I think this video speaks to the education crisis in our country. Really I shouldn’t have laughed as hard as I did — these people are serious — but what a bunch of fools. If you’re going to be a sign-toting right-winger at least know what the h-e-double-hockey-sticks you’re talking about.
What’s not funny is the undercurrent of assassination — the signs that read “Bury Obama-care With Kennedy” and “Unarmed — This Time.” Intimidation through violence or threats of violence is terrorism. Pathetic, really, after the last eight years of gutting the Constitution and screwing over this country that people come out with this crap. It’s unpatriotic. There, I said it.
For the 11th time, I’m heading back to Black Rock City. Like a moth to the flame, I guess. I took some time off from the event but am excited to get out there and play.
One thing I’ll be doing is blogging from the desert. You can look for it on the Burning Blog, where I’ve already posted a few times this summer.
Some great pre-press has come out, including this story about a doctor who works at the event and the unusual medical cases out there. Have you ever heard of playa foot? You don’t want it, that’s for sure.
Mark Morford’s last column was about the life lessons of Burning Man. Like many Morford columns, it’s funny and rambling and over-the-top (oral sex in public? Maybe that will be my new thing to try out this year! Ahem). His way of describing the event touched something within the community. He calls it “beautifully debauched.” I have experienced the fierce joy he writes about and I’m headed back for more.
