That was my favorite news station in all of PA. Was Joe there? or is he biking for cancer? Are the old people going to leave angry messages for the next 3 weeks which they'll play on the air as jokes?

Being born and raised in sw La., the only bears we saw were in zoos or in pictures. It was always one of those animals you had a fear of.
In 1973 I had a chance to go to God's Lake, Manitoba on a fishing trip. My brother and I took one day and were exploring the Island with a couple of Cree Indians that were our age. We came up on this trash dump and when we came out of the trees into the dump, there was a family of bears. My brother and I about shiat ourselves and our Indian buddies took off running into the dump after the bears screaming and hollering, throwing things and the bears took off running. We were in awe at what we thought was first class bravery.

Years later when I moved to the Chicago area and was a white water kayak instructor in northern Wi., bears were fairly common and most of them just hauled ass before you got a chance to get a good glimpse of them.

/that's my bear story.

Why does this never happen on MY local news? I just get talking heads laughing at their own jokes, elementary-level science demonstrations, and shameless self-promotion.

The talkback segment is comedy gold. The other week they played one where a guy was arguing that they should remove all the computers from the schools. You could hear him banging his cane on the floor as he yelled at the phone. I was waiting for him to start rambling about kids getting off his lawn too, classic.

I had a lot of good times on WNEP's Talkback online. It's too bad they squashed it about a month or two ago. Most of the regulars from there moved here though: NEPA Talkback

I can't remember the name of the guy who left like 2 years ago (married to Noreen Clark who i think still works there), but he was the best. It was like whoever was in charge of talkback would intentionally save the best one for last and they would automatically zoom to him to see if they could catch him laughing (which would work a lot less then it should have). I wanted to start recording those and send them to the soup.

Tom Clark is still there, he's the chief of meteorology. They even mention him in the video.

That's what happens when you let women into the newsroom.

/their menstrual cycles attract bears. It's science.

The bears were merely fleeing the April Snowpocalypse that is supposed to hit PA.

Jim Halpert: Question. What kind of bear is best?
Dwight Schrute: That's a ridiculous question.
Jim Halpert: False. Black bear.
Dwight Schrute: That's debatable. There are basically two schools of thought--
Jim Halpert: Fact. Bears eat beets. Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.
Dwight Schrute: Bears do not... What is going on?! What are you doing?!

Jim Halpert: Andy, Dwight says welcome back and he could use a hug.
Dwight Schrute: Okay, tell him that that's not true.
Jim Halpert: Dwight says that he doesn't actually know one single fact about bear attacks.
Dwight Schrute: Okay. No. Jim tell him bears can climb faster than they can run. Jim! Tell him!
Jim Halpert: Andy... No, it's too far.
Dwight Shrute: Damn you.

I'm sick of these constant bear attacks. It's like a frickin' country bear jambaroo around here!

I still want to know what the two schools of thought are on the subject.

Best work instruction I ever got: "Before you open the door to access the stairway to the lab, look through the window to ensure there are no bears."
