    As reported by

    The crowd that gathered around the front of the Old Parkland Hospital on Thursday could have been re-enacting a scene from almost a century ago. Back in 1913, Dallas public officials and business leaders were on hand for the laying of the cornerstone of the new public hospital. Inside they placed a copper box filled with documents.

    On Thursday, the battered time capsule was removed from the landmark\'s foundation for the first time. Inside were the crumbling remains of some letters and two mostly intact newspapers.

    I think it’s delightful that Crow Holdings chose to commemorate the reopening of this wonderful structure by taking a careful look at the cornerstone and the contents of the cornerstone.
