Somebody was asking about a shot of the capitol exterior... well... here's what it looks like right now. The gold leaf is being redone on the dome exterior and it's wrapped in scaffolding and plastic.... so it looks like the dome is wearing a... uhhh... prophylactic device. Not much to look at these days. It should be quite spectacular when finished. The gold leaf was put back on several years ago after many years of crappy paint... but the job was botched and the glue holding the gold on leached out causing dark streaks to appear. So now it's being redone and we hope it will be stay beautiful for many years to come. It really is quite spectacular to see the dome with new gold on it shining in the sun. I'm looking forward to seeing that again.
