Famous “Shawshank” tree falls

One of my favorite movies is “The Shawshank Redemption”, and according to IMDB, it is the highest-rated movie in their database.  One of the pivotal scenes late in the movie revolves around a secret cache hidden near an ancient oak tree.  This iconic 200-year-old tree, which was filmed in Mansfield, Ohio, fell down this week after high winds ripped it apart five years after lightning damaged several parts of the tree.  You can read about it at CNN at http://www.cnn.com/2016/07/22/entertainment/oak-tree-from-shawshank-redemption-falls/index.html.
