11:44 p.m. -- Well there's the problem right there: Bears don't like to be "herded." Enticed, coddled, baited, lured, urged, nudged, even scooted, might be preferable; they just don't like being "herded." A friendly little pat on the tush can go a long way. (or you may) Or you could just shoot it.

I love this column. Stuff really worth talking about. This was a good day.

Steamboat rocks. Where else can you hide your moped in a portable toilet and then read about it in the paper.

So what if the NSA is spying on every person in America; they have the technology. I foresaw this when Bill Gates had closed-door meetings with Congress back in the early part of this century, to escape his anti-trust charges with a slap on the wrist. We KNOW Big Brother is monitoring all email, the to/from and subject, if not the (possibly encrypted) contents. My Linux guru set up an email "remailer" a few years back, just to make the IP trail untraceable, and next thing, the FBI shows up in town, threatening to confiscate his servers; he secretly recorded the meeting -- and they were Internet DOLTS, guru was protecting privacy and the American Way, they left town shaking their heads...

So we know the Feds are watching our every move, that's a given -- privacy is an illusion. Whichever puppet occupies the Oval Office strengthens their grip. I've related ad infinitum whom I think is ultimately responsible for making us all slaves (anybody employed, anyway) their HQ in Houston is a fortress worthy of Jim Bowie and Davy Crockett.

Who cares? There's nothing anybody can do about it anyway; this is a runaway train. I'm a good subject, burying my head in the sand with the latest opiate for men: Baseball. Think Tulo will keep up his recent hot streak?

I would like to report a suspicious person: It's ME. I suspect a vast hoax. One might say conspiracy. No other information is available. Everything is fine.

The current xkcd comic is rather timely --

The bear was just looking for a subaru to get in and drive back to the porta potty where he left his moped. Got to quit giving these bears too much Hamms beer.

I'll bet that bear they relocated was an imposter -- a stand-in, scapegoat, aper, even copycat. The real culprit is smarter than the average bear. "Ducking" the Law, finding Subaru's to be a viable food source, this is one clever critter. And don't try to "herd" him: Coax, accompany, escort, assist, coerce, even motivate -- just don't "herd." They don't like that. They get offended. Bears aren't cows. Don't treat them as such.

Now we'll see if the Rocks can beat these Washington losers...

A bear went down the river in a canoe. Everything was fine. He then jumped on his moped, but lost his wallet. When steamboat's finest tried to return his wallet while he was in the port-a-potty, he ran away to find his Subaru. However, ACET had seized the Subaru as it looked suspiciously like a rolling meth lab. No other information is available. Everything is fine.
