Sometime Wednesday morning, while flipping between a TV news interview with tearful Olympic athlete Lolo Jones (her feelings hurt by a New York Times piece critical of her track performances in recent days) and an update on the series of earthquakes that began the night before, I landed on a channel showing a teaser for an upcoming segment: A neighborhood in the foothills was again reporting a bear sighting.
Actually, this time it was an ursine trio, a mother and her two cubs. The two little ones played in a swimming pool while their parental unit presumably took on the role of lifeguard.
The news promo did its job: I endured the commercials in order to find out exactly where these bears had been sighted. Was it in our city (again)? La Crescenta (again)? Glendale (again)? Pasadena (again)? Altadena? Sierra Madre? Monrovia? Duarte?
