MESSAGE TO JOURNALISTS: Thank you so much for your interest in BundyFest!
A quick point of correction: I am NOT 'the organizer of Burning Man.' Some outlet announced that late last night, and several others have erroneously run with it (gotta love the internet).
When I used the word 'we' in the video, in conjunction with Burning Man, it is because I consider those desert artists and freedom-loving participants to be part of my culture. I have in fact never BEEN to Burning Man (although I'd like to go -- maybe this year )
I have also never been to Japan, and am not Japanese; but when I am discussing, for example, Fukushima, and the dangers of nuclear power, I also refer to collective humanity as 'we'.
In fact, when I refer to Cliven Bundy's issue with the federal government, I also refer to 'we', because Cliven, and I, and you, and all of us, are in this same boat together -- whether any of us like it or not (and for the record, if 'a house divided against itself cannot stand' ... well, we probably shouldn't try sailing two separate halves of a boat, either).
Thank you again for your interest!
