Where there's Smoke, there's a reporter!
In much of BC the tourism industry is being hurt by unfounded worries about forest fires..kind of a hangover from last year's disasters.
We had big rain again last week,
The hills are nice and green,
For the middle part of August ,
It's about the best I've ever seen.
I guess there aint much news value,
in a so-so kind of year,
So the media folks keep digging around,
to stir up a little fear.
Thunder storms, bring lightning,
Along with heavy rain,
a good storm lights a hundred fires,
Then puts them out again.
The forestry guys and news boys ,
Count the fires every day
just to try to generate a story,
and scare the tourists away!
