Monday we were shocked to here about the shooting of a security guard at the Illinois State House in Springfield. We had just visited the palatial capitol building on Sunday after having brunch with the Watts-Grade wedding party on Lake Springfield.

On Monday a shooter entered the capitol and shot an unarmed guard. When we visited the state house, the guard asked for our photo id. I didn't realize the guard was unarmed. We were able to catch a short tour through the 390 foot tall domed building. The craftsmanship involved makes it a real gem. Imported marble, wrought iron, cut crystal, painted plaster. Eye opening. A palace dedicated to democracy and the rule of law. Too bad it became a place of violence with a coward's actions.

Pics of this great building.
