I used to do this thing where I would post the three "most important" headlines from the AOL Instant Messenger welcome screen because I couldn't believe how lame they were, especially considering the important news that was often being neglected. I don't do it anymore because it got boring; in fact, I'm sure you realized that before I did. However, there is a story this morning that is worth noting:
SEATTLE (Reuters) - A black bear was found passed out at a campground in Washington state recently after guzzling down three dozen cans of a local beer, a campground worker said on Wednesday.
The really cool part of the story comes later: it seems that the bear has a preference for local microbrew rather than the mass market swill from some random corporation based in St. Louis.
