Crime of the Century (Arson Division)

     A Salem, Ore. man is plainly not the hottest log in the fireplace.
     On January 27, the man, twenty, whom the Associated Press declined to name, worked his way into to an abandoned building at a place called the Fairview Training Center. There, he got stoned with a buddy. (A bud buddy?) The pair then set the place on fire, a not unreasonable recreational activity for young men who are completely baked.
     The fire did $50,000 worth of damage to the building, which the property owner had planned to demolish anyway.
     Both men face second-degree arson charges. The first man also ought to be charged with unlawful dimwittedness. He bragged to his hairdresser about setting the fire. The hairdresser tipped police.
