Times are tough . . .

NOW THEY'RE STEALING BRIDGES. Specifically, the one that was found at Covert’s Crossing in western Pennsylvania — a century-old, 50 feet long, 40 tons heavy. According to Liz Navratil, at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, someone came in with blowtorches and dismantled the whole thing sometime between Sept. 27 and Oct. 7. Worth about $100K, will eventually re-appear as a Hyundai or somesuch.
H/T Helmut, merci.
