Got quoted in the New York Times! That's kinda fun!
“This is a Burning Man cataclysm,” said Mick Jeffries, 46, a ticketless graphic designer from Lexington, Ky. “The people who did not get tickets are the people who make Burning Man captivating.”
For several years Mr. Jeffries has been a lead organizer of the Kentucky Fried Camp, a group of several dozen Burners who serve up a daily breakfast of fried baloney and shots of bourbon (free, of course, since Burning Man operates on a “gift economy”).
The camp had big plans to add deep-fried Twix bars to the menu this year, but only two people who entered the lottery got tickets — not the quorum needed to run the kitchen.
