    Someone's got a bridge to sell...

    http://www.wtae.com/r/29413287/detail.html

    Pennsylvania State Police are looking for a steel bridge worth an estimated $100,000 that was dismantled and taken from a rural area in Lawrence County.

    Police said they believe a torch was used to cut apart the bridge, which measured 50 feet by 20 feet, near Covert's Crossing in North Beaver Township.
    Wow. I have no idea what to say about this.

    I hope that the people that stole that bridge in years to come will remember how it was built and who built it. Not a gang of slaves, but soldiers, British soldiers, Clipton, even in captivity.

    They just finished refurbishing the old Rock Island Line bridge across the Arkansas River by the Clinton Library in Little Rock last weekend. To convert it from a railroad bridge to a pedestrian-bicycle bridge, they added a series of steel beams to act as support for a sloping walkway up the bridge. The beams do not appear to be new because they match the patina of the old bridge structure.

    Where do you get enough old steel to refurbish a bridge? Coincidence or not? You decide.
