As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

White House Dossier Returns!

I just want to thank all of you for the wonderful comments wishing me a nice vacation. It was really gratifying and very much appreciated. And thanks everyone for waiting while I took a little break.

I went to the woods. Actually, with the spotty Internet service, I lost a 500 word article I had written for you. After nearly throwing my computer onto a large rock, I calmed down and decided the Gods of the Forest didn’t want me to write, so I stopped.

I saw a bear. Looked like a yearling, the size of a very large dog. And my brother went jogging on a trail and nearly ran right into mama bear, all six feet of her on her hind legs. Instead of backing away slowly, like you’re supposed to, he turned around and ran right back where he came from. Glad he’s still alive.

Actually, they’re black bears which, as I understand it, rarely attack people.

And no, I didn’t shoot anything. I’m originally from New York City. We don’t hunt. The only hunting I was exposed to there involved people shooting at other people.

Anyway, glad to be back with you all.

  1. Sounds like you were in for an adventure.

    My Grandfather was hunting one time when he came upon 2 bear cubs. Within seconds he was charged by Momma. He had to kill her. Not supposed to kill female bears with cubs. Had to bring back a forest ranger to help the cubs survive . . . but he got to keep the Momma. My only time to ever eat bear.

  2. Welcome back Keith. Sounds like you had a memorable experience and that is what a vacation is all about. You really should learn how to hunt critters though…just in case Moochelle decides to ban the sale of meats.

    In our younger years our family would go camping as often as we could. Only time we ever saw a bear was in the Gila Wilderness when a group of them were raiding camp sites in the middle of the night. Come to think of it, that was the last time we slept in a tent too.

  3. You returned I feel better it’s 11:00pm and 79 degrees as opposed to last night
    it was still 98. Obama s back to nothing. You made me laugh when you said
    I’m fom NYC and we don’t huntx:). Yes all is right in the world again well we of
    WHD world:)

  4. Welcome back, Keith! Sounds like you had a wonderful respite from the hooligans in D.C. Those Mama Bears are pretty confrontational – glad your brother is okay!

    • Black bears must be smart enough to know they don’t NEED to attack people. I would think just standing up would send folks running. They probably joke about scaring people among themselves. heh heh.

  5. Good to have you back, Keith, and I’m glad you were able to get away for a few days to rest. Cool that y’all saw bears! Depending on where you went, it may have been bears that were used to seeing people.

    Funny — When I read your sentence, “I went to the woods,” my first thought was of Henry David Thoreau’s “Walden.”

  6. Welcome home, Keith. It was sure quiet around here without you.

    Bears must be making a huge comeback. Last year I drove through Yellowstone twice. There were traffic jams everywhere caused by bears.

    The only things I saw more of than bears were highway construction signs…”This Project Funded By the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.” Little actual work, of course, but lots of signs.

  7. Welcome back Keith! sounds like a nice break

    was there an executive order signed over the weekend to take control of communications in a crisis? thought I saw it on drudge but now can’t seem to find it
