@ CherieSpotting     Sep 04 2003 - 02:33 PST
cherie writes: Burning Man started on a beach near San Francisco in 1986. In a display of fire about 20 people watched the effigy of a Man burn to the sand. Now the Man burns each year in the Black Rock Desert to the chants, screams and cheers of about 30,000 Burners.
