A town in Washington has built a replica of the Zakim Bridge - for squirrels . It now also serves as something of a memorial to the man who thought it up - who died before the 12-foot-long replica could be installed:
Dick, a retired Longview attorney who had a lifelong fascination with bridges, was familiar with the Zakim Memorial Bridge because it appeared in background shots of "Boston Legal," one of his favorite TV shows, according to his wife, Diane Dick.
