Futility + Necessity = Stupidity

See that great big oak tree at the upper right side of this photo?  That tree is over a hundred years old.  It sits on the very edge of the property at our school.  It has been there longer than any other building standing nearby.

The city has determined the street needs to be widened.  So by the end of January, that beautiful shade tree will be destroyed.  A century of history in its creation, gone because a two-lane road is no longer adequate, according to the planning commission.


(This view from outside my classroom building.  It was 27 degrees and raining like mad, or else I would have gone outside to take the shot.)
