Opinion: Capitol dome prompts memories of cancers past
Published 10/06/2010, Republic columnist
From our bedroom window, we have a decent view of the dome of the state Capitol building.
The view is better after the leaves drop in the fall, but it isn’t bad right now. It would be perfect if I could lop off one huge branch from an elm tree in the yard across the street. I’ve been tempted to sneak over some night and do that. So far, I haven’t given in to that foolish act of vandalism, and for the moment I accept the tree and its place in my view of the Capitol dome.
