Fear the Bear(d)

There were a lot of post-election hangovers all over the country today, but here in California we're feeling better than some because of the crushing defeat of Prop 23, the attempt by Texas oil companies to derail our state's transition to clean energy. Of course, here in San Francisco we're feeling even better than that because the San Francisco Giants won the World Series. The victory parade passed two blocks away from Sierra's office, which pretty much emptied out as we cheered our heroes. Some followed them all the way to San Francisco's Civic Center for more festivities--and there, in one of the harmonic convergences for which our part of the country is so noted, the two issues came together:
