Sacajawea and Jean-Baptiste'
HOW DISGUSTING! This beautiful statue, pictured here on the front of this book, of Sacajawea and her baby, Jean-Babtiste' was broken off of it's base and stolen from Fort Clatsop this past weekend. As far as I know, the culprits have yet to be caught. It is thought that the statue was stolen with the intent of being melted down and sold for scrap metal. To fund drugs? A lot of that type of thing has been happening around here lately, which is all very disgusting, but for some reason this incident just seems particularly heinous to me. Sacajawea and her baby?? How could you?! As my mother would have said "May the bird of paradise fly up your nose!"
On the same type of note, the phone service all over our county and into Washington was disrupted last Friday. Turns out some "Meth Heads" had dug up a good portion of the line to steal the copper tubing. (That's the theory. Others say that there isn't actually an copper on the fiber optic lines. Heck, who knows...) Seems to me that there would have to be easier ways to get copper. Are these same idiots the one's who stole our bronze Sacajawea?
I hope your busted, and soon...
