Labor Day weekend is fast approaching, which means Burning Man is almost here. As is the Republican National Convention. Maybe. Depending on how Mother Nature and her newborn son Isaac feel about it.
As I head off to the hostile — yet, beautiful — Black Rock desert, the Best F#@cking News Team in the World is heading off to the hostile — yet, even more hostile — Tampa swamplands. Goggles are essential attire for Burning Man and I bet they’d come in useful in Tampa this year as well, to protect against both inclement weather and aspersions.
