Burning Man...a ritual?

Hmm, maybe.

There was just a segment on CBS Sunday Morning about this yearly event in the Nevada desert. The guy who founded it was referring to it as a "ritual" and said rituals were valuable because they showed us things are still the way they always were...

So, does that mean our ancestors used to set big metal neon men on fire?

Give me a real free-standing bonfire made of wood anyday. Starwood obviously kicks Burnings Man's ass. And with far fewer people.
