Someone asked me if Smokey (I have been misspelling it) originated in Oregon. I was just reading about him. Apparently the actual bear was in New Mexico but Oregon did play a major role in why Smokey was used in public ads. Fascinating. I shudder to think what would have happened if the Japanese had been successful in burning all the forests in Oregon.
