Some Chicago Boyz know each other from student days at the University of Chicago. Others are Chicago boys in spirit. The blog name is also intended as a good-humored gesture of admiration for distinguished Chicago School economists and fellow travelers.

Where are the bears?
Northern Wisconsin, apparently.
Pass a law prohibiting bears from opening trash cans.
The trash dumpster in our community has that same latch. The bears haven’t figured it out yet, as they have several other types that have been used in the past. They are highly intelligent and I’m sure will eventually get it done.
Sounds like you also need an ordinance passed as Jonathan noted.
Like our “lion-free zones” and “no defecating zones” for deer?
In Juneau the dumpsters have a latch that unlatches upward–which bears could only do if up on the cover.
That’s about as useful a law as the one on the books prohibiting Chicago citizens from owning handguns but I don’t want to hijack this thread :)
When I lived in Gotham, the two guys on the second floor referred to themselves as “Bears”. They threw a lot of parties, and had a lot of burly friends. Never met the wives, though…
well isn’t that specieist?

“In-Garden Consumption Free Zones” in all local neighborhoods?
I long ago arranged for a no-stupidity zone in Washington, DC.
That’s been about as effective as any gun ban.
A similar species, though I suspect my fellow tenants a different genus. The Boys On The Bridge, more Ursus americana, than the big fellers in 2B, who were most certainly Ursus horribilus.
As a Wisconsin native, I choose to believe that message is for the helmeted sort of Bear.
