From the "It Doesn't Take Much to Amuse Me" files...

Our local paper runs daily news updates on its web site - breaking news or random local stories of often-questionable interest. Today, this gem appeared amid dazzling headlines like "Eating club qualifies for tax-exempt status" and "Romney, 'Today' host apologize for not wearing seat belts:"

CENTRAL JERSEY: How well do you understand black bears?

The BEAR Group, based in West Milford, is beginning to hold monthly meetings in other counties to educate residents about black bears, better unite its membership and to attract new interest.

With black bears sighted in Bridgewater, Hillsborough and other Central Jersey towns in recent years, knowledge about black bears can be very beneficial.

And so on...

Under each news bulletin, readers have the opportunity to post comments. There is usually little to no commentary, and this story was no exception, with just one comment.

But oh, what a comment it was...

Gee, I dunno. I've never had the opportunity to "bond" with one. I'm sure they have goals and feelings and challenges in life like we all do. I hear that their employment opportunities are limited - being furry woodland creatures and all - but it sounds as though there's a positive movement going forward to mainstream them...or shoot them...or something. Right?

Kudos to this reader. I need to know who this is. I should be hanging out with this person.
