reno 911 Burning Man

(Reno 911 police officers preparing to attend the Burning Man Festival.)

For Immediate Release:
U.S. Senate candidate John Mertens attending Burning Man

John Mertens, U.S. Senate candidate in Connecticut, will attend Burning Man, an annual event held in the Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada next week.

Alternate CT festivals during the same time frame Dr. Mertens could have chosen:

Meet the Artists & Artisans Labor Day Show -- Mystic, CT
September 4, 2010 to September 6, 2010
Beneath the shades of the apple trees this 60 award-winning exhibitor show features national award winning artists and artisans.


Prudence Crandall Day -- Canterbury
September 4, 2010
Celebrate the birthday of Connecticut's State Female Hero with craft demonstrations on the lawn, period music, self guided tours of the museum and a theatrical performance by Young Audiences of Connecticut

Connecticut Bob also has some thoughts on Dr. Merten's trip,  but this cat sums it up for me:
