It smelled like Pine-Sol near the intersection of 43rd and T.C. Jester this morning, but for a depressing reason: A major culling of the beloved trees in the area.
The drought is to blame, most likely; the city has been taking down trees that have died of thirst and have become dangerous should a windstorm hit town.
The trees need to come down, we guess, but it's a sad thing to see.
