The comment period on the proposed grizzly bear reintroduction is wrapping up this week. As per usual with this sort of study, there are choices -- and a "goldilocks principle" certainly at work.

You know how that powdery snow is really hard to pack together into snowballs?? You just keep trying. Yep, that's what I'm talkin' about here. Straight up and totally transparent as per usual. GRRR!

Pure and simple: I need to keep some distance from the daily news barrage. I'll keep up on things for sure, but via small and measured doses and not so much in reaction to repeatedly crazy things...
