Lured by a letter from an ex-finacee expressing concern about her missing daughter, The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith this week traveled to Black Rock City, NV, where he encountered a strange community that has isolated itself from modern civilization. With increasing desperation, Smith has sought to piece together clues about the missing girl he now believes to be his own daughter, but his efforts have been actively thwarted by locals whose bizarre customs and rituals continually leave Smith confused and annoyed. In the most recent turn of events, today Smith was surrounded by a crowd of people dressed in animal costumes, had his head forcibly covered with bees, and both of his legs broken. He has now been hoisted to the top of an enormously tall wooden effigy which is soon to be set ablaze.
