At the risk of causing upset or invoking people's ire, I wish to pose a
question over the list that ran through my mind repeatedly through the
course of the day as I drained, mopped, and dried my tent. Why is it
that we keep holding this events at a site which we know is highly flood
prone, not nice to look at, and has huge amounts of mundane traffic
running through it? Normally that last bit would not bother me, but we
seem to have incidents regularly with the mundanes there. I remember
kids going through with air horns, near fights, thefts, and this year
there were looters going through when we still had nearly a third of our
people on site. I know there are a lot of arguments (even some very good
arguments) for this place, but at what point is enough, enough?
