Description

The annual Burning Man counterculture festival now taking place in a Nevada desert is known for attracting scantily clad revelers, bike lovers, artists, musicians and as it turns out, even attention from the FBI. According to documents posted this week at MuckRock.com, the FBI monitored the event in 2010, finding that it carried risks associated with crowd control and illegal drugs. Burning Man, named for the burning of a wooden effigy that marks the climax of the festival of art and free expression brings tens of thousands of people to the Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada and adds an estimated $35 million to the local economy each year. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/reuters/entertainment/~3/l6blBo4Mfus/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com
