How should law enforcement officers from Pershing County police the counter-cultural event Burning Man? The county and the organization that runs Burning Man reached an agreement in October, but a judge failed to ratify it, calling it "illegal and unenforceable." The judge cited concerns about nudity and child welfare at the event, but participants say that removing either element would change the nature of Burning Man. So can the county and Burning Man continue to coexist in harmony? Or should the event move to private property?

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
