Bearing the Blues

At a bus shelter there was an ad: a photo that showed a bear about to catch a salmon in a stream. The ad advertised easy money, peace of mind, or something like that.

On the bus someone said ingloriously, “we’re packed like sardines in a can.” Someone else was commenting on a story from that morning's newspaper, a story about a homeless bear that was roaming the suburbs, hunting for scraps in garbage cans.
