It seems fitting, in this Presidential election year, that we should update a classic line from the 1984 Reagan campaign — “There’s a bear in the woods.”
Today, we say: Â There’s a bear in the mall.
A black bear was spotted inside Â a Sears store in suburban Pittsburgh yesterday. Â Wildlife conservation officials trapped and tranquilized the bear between the automatic entrance/exit doors. Â The bear had been spent time earlier in the day (shopping? Â browsing? Â trying on board shorts?) Â inside a nearby Walmart and a J.C Penney. Â The full story comes from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
This post has nothing whatsoever to do with IP, the Internet, technology policy, innovation, legal education, or any of the other things that occasionally find their way into the blog. Â Readers may, of course, draw their own literal and metaphorical inferences. Â Or at least supply their own punch lines. Â Whatever bears are known to do in the woods, they now are doing something in the stores.
