Caleb Pershan | September 6, 2013 | Story

Elaborate Drag Funeral Today For Pioneering Activist Jose Sarria: This might be the funerial event of the season, and it's merited by Sarria's brilliant and brave activism. He'll be remembered fondly. [H/t: SFist]

The Futile Exercise of Writing About Burning Man: Caleb Garling admirably engages an exercise in futility. [H/t: SFGate]
