Burning Man Gets 2 year Permit! 

From Jack Rabbit Speaks, the official newsletter of the Burning Man organization:
BURNING MAN GETS TWO-YEAR PERMIT IN BLACK ROCK DESERT

It's true! You may have seen in the news that our city has been granted
a permit from the Bureau of Land Management to rise for not just ONE but
the next TWO years. This is unprecedented; for the last fourteen years
we have applied for a new permit each year. Thanks to all of YOU for
showing that a city of thirty thousand conscientious individuals really
CAN respect the land and leave no trace.

The below quote from a BLM official (which ran on the AP wire) gets to
the heart of the matter. Let's keep up the good work and keep setting
the standard!

"'Burning Man has an excellent track record,' said Dave Cooper of the
BLM’s Winnemucca field office. 'This group teaches and practices leave
no trace and other large events can learn a lot from it.'"
