    Fort Clatsop, a replica of where Lewis and Clark wintered after reaching the Pacifc Ocean has been burned down, possibly an act of arson.

    I've been there few a few times myself. (I was even there to greet the two marine officers who retraced their route back in the "70's) I also knew someone who worked on the building of this replica.

    Really, really sad if it was arson. The world is full of sick people.

    The Governer was just about in tears. Apparently this had tremendous personal significance to a lot of people.

    At least they're planning to rebuild. Terrible that someone would be so sick as to destroy something like that.
