More Yogi, less 'bears gone wild'
Recovering conservative Andrew Sullivan's meditation on bears is still a nice read -- especially now, as the hairy things lumber about Provincetown, where Sullivan often summers. "They're cheerful,'' he wrote in Salon back in 2003. "They don't give a shit what others think of them; they're more overtly social than sexual; they drink rather than do drugs; they seem, on the whole, older and far more grown-up than their party-boy cousins. They eat and drink and joke and cuddle and stroke and generally have a great time."
