The Editorial Committee for this blog (and the Bear's other blogs) wishes to inform you, sadly, that said Bear's blogging privileges have been curtailed, temporarily. (Bear's tail has not been effected by this decision, nor have his tales.)
Bear is currently indisposed, and the Editorial Committee does not want to dispose of him, or see him disposed of by others, during this period. As with dogs, we believe it is best to "let sleeping Bears lie." As in remain inclined, or reclined, as opposed to telling an untruth — something the Editorial Committee would not allow.
Bear will be allowed to continue "thinking deep thoughts," but will not be allowed to publish them, until he is more fit of mind and body. (Demanding that Bear be entirely fit of mind and body would preclude his return to blogging entirely.) Among those "deep thoughts" is the return of Fascism as a dominant political force in the world.
Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
~ Editorial Committee
