Black Bear. At VLS, the financial aid people sit you down during your first semester, I think to assess your grip on the reality of your fiscal present and future. Enter Black Bear Crestfallen, I schlepped my sorry self from my minuscule apartment, across the Village Green toward the coffee shop. And then the whole lot of backslapping, ecstatic locals entered the coffee shop, as the once-mighty bear lie writhing in pain.
