The roof of the Oregon State Hospital's historic J building in Salem, Oregon is removed Monday, April 6, 2009. The J Building's south wing is part of a 126-year-old hospital made famous by the 1975 Oscar winning film, "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," starring Jack Nicholson. In 2005, state-hired consultants deemed the J Building obsolete and unsafe. A new 620-bed psychiatric facility is scheduled to be completed in 2011. (AP Photo/Statesman Journal, Lori Cain)
