"The grizzly is an icon, like the eagle and the buffalo, because it reminds Americans of the heroic past in which they wrung a civilization out a wilderness. Indeed, the 26th president, Theodore Roosevelt, believed that the grizzly on its hind legs was a better symbol of American vigour than the bald eagle."

Imagine, if you can, the Globe and Anchor w/the Griz' replacing that Eagle...???
