Irrespective of the view of the proper size, scope and role of government, I think most Oklahomans recognize and understand the importance of the grandeur of our State Capitol building.  It is not only the seat of the executive and legislative branches of government, but it is also a symbol of much history of us as a state and its appearances says a lot about us going forward.  Save the utilitarian rectangular plain concrete and glass buildings for the many government workers who tend to the gears of the bureaucracy, the Capitol building needs to be something special and significant.

Well, I'm not a big fan of Nebraska's state capital, it's one tall 400' tower, no dome or nothing. It does not look bad but it does not look like a state capital. Nebraska has no senate or house, it's one big unit combined into one. Oh Well...

Oklahoma State Capitol Evacuated

http://www.newson6.com/story/20934628/state-capitol-evacuated-following-bomb-threat



OKLAHOMA CITY - Hundreds of people are forced to evacuate the State Capitol, but officials are not yet confirming why.
Pilot Jim Gardner flew over the scene Friday morning in Bob Mills SkyNews 9 HD. There was reportedly a bomb threat to the building, but officials have not confirmed that information.

The State Capitol was filled with school children because it's Colonial Day. The students are learning about the Colonial period in American history, so they are dressed up in period costumes.

Sadly, my first thought was a crazed plan by Fallin.

And what's with children dressing up like punctuation marks?  I guess it's better than wearing jeans around the knees.

Bomb Threat at State Capitol

http://kwgs.com/post/bomb-threat-state-capitol-0

Quote
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the state Capitol was evacuated after a woman called police with a bomb threat directed at Gov. Mary Fallin. Fallin spokesman Alex Weintz says the governor — who was in the building — was taken to an undisclosed location and is safe. Trooper Betsy Randolph says a woman called Oklahoma City police about 10:25 a.m. Friday and said multiple bombs would go off at the governor's mansion and other locations. Randolph says Fallin was immediately notified and ordered the evacuation of the Capitol as a precaution. Randolph says a sweep of the governor's mansion and the Capitol determined both buildings are secure, and workers were allowed to return to the building about 11:30. Randolph says a female suspect has been arrested by Oklahoma City police.

Ooh, we have undisclosed locations, too! Maybe Cheney will come back for another visit. Wink
