I'm actually quite shocked that the history section has lasted as long as it did, considering everything is unsourced. (Yes, I realize that I was the one that put it up in the first place.) I will try to track down proper sources, which may not be easy. Clearing is not a very well-known area, nor has its history been well-documented. Gutterball1219 (talk) 03:05, 22 January 2008 (UTC)
