Crumbling Oklahoma Ca_Hass-5.jpg

In this Oct. 12, 2011 photo, people walk under a protective scaffolding on their way to the state Capitol entrance in Oklahoma City. Mortar is beginning to fall away from the building. The State Capitol has been a shrine for Oklahoma's history and aspirations since it opened in 1917. But at what may be the worst possible time, the stately structure is showing signs of crumbling.
