In One Ear: You can’t fix stupid

Senseless selfies

Last week, this column mentioned the Alaska Katmai National Park and Preserve’s Brooks Falls brown bears are starring on the National Park Service’s Explore.org webcams fishing for salmon (bit.ly/bearfalls).

The area is off-limits for tourists, so you can imagine the consternation when webcam footage showed some bozo in shorts (as of Thursday, yet to be charged) wading right into the river to take some selfies with six feeding bears (bit.ly/bearbozo1).

The Anchorage Daily News says the National Park Service deemed his actions “unprecedented” (bit.ly/bearbozo). Stupid is more like it.
