The Fire Preventin’ Bear

Wednesday, August 6th, 2008

I have had a fondness for the song “Smokey The Bear” ever since the surreal experience of hearing three of my forestry professors (Peter Murphy, Jack Heidt and Paul Woodard) sing it at an informal talent show event at the University of Alberta back in the early 1980s.

I realize that Smokey Bear doesn’t have a middle name, but to me he will always be The Bear.
