Ursa Observation

I am reading A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson. He's talking about his pre-trip black bear fears. So, Bryson has coward in his blood too—though decidedly more warranted than my West Nile paranoias.

How many lazy days did my sister and I play alone in the creek? (Bears need to drink... oh.) How many nights did we wander beneath an Ursa Major sky?... Blissfully ignorant of Bryson's observation, "All bears are agile, cunning, immensely strong, and they are always hungry. If they want to kill you and eat you, they can, and pretty much whenever they want."

Urban life has its advantages, I concede.
