In light of the rising frequency of human/grizzly bear conflicts, the Montana Department of Fish and Game is advising hikers, hunters, and fishermen to take extra precautions and keep alert for bears while in the field.

We advise that outdoorsmen wear noisy little bells on their clothing so as not to startle bears that aren't expecting them. We also advise outdoorsmen to carry pepper spray with them in case of an encounter with a bear. It is also a good idea to watch out for fresh signs of bear activity. Outdoorsmen should recognize the difference between black bear and grizzly bear poop. Black bear poop contains lots of berries and squirrel fur. Grizzly bear poop has little bells in it and smells like pepper.

part in quite a genuine sense in passing 
 judgment on Richard Nixon." -Archibald Cox

an impeachable offense... 
these are legalisms, as far as the handling 
of this matter is concerned; 
it was so botched up, I made so many bad judgments.

rather than the head. 
But let me say, a man in that top job - 
he's got to have a heart, but his head must
always rule his heart." -Richard Nixon

In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream."
-Edgar Allan Poe, Dream Within A Dream, A
