      Indeed, what a dopey view this is. Bob's I mean.

      The article doesn't "celebrate" the death of the tree at all. It
      presents it as what it is - the end of a historically significant
      landmark.

      Bob's interpretation of Duroyan's motives is, of course, entirely
      subjective.
