Grizzly Man.

We all must have things that disturb us. Things that, when we read or hear about them, haunt us.

The Grizzly Man haunts me. Ever since I read an article about him, I can't stop thinking about him. I am so...horrified by it all.

Excerpt from his appearance on Letterman:

    Treadwell: It's important that every bear knows who I am and that I fit on their hierarchy if I'm to survive.

    Letterman: Is it going to happen that one day we're going to read a news article about you being eaten by one of these bears?

    Treadwell: Uh, No.
How prophetic, Letterman. How can people not have nightmares about him?

So now I have a sick fascination with his life. I want to see the movie, but then again, I don't know if I could handle it. Watching his life knowing he'll die--knowing how he dies...

You get a good sense about his life, "mission," and death from the reviews at the IMDB link above and the others below. The first two have clips from the movie.

Look for more on your own, if you want.

Try thinking about good things instead of bad. I believe that is some advice that I read in the Bible. Seems like it's in a letter to Phillipians or something like that.
