Hi, I recently visited an exhibition at the Wellcome Collection in London UK, about the Bethlem Hospitals, notorious Victorian mental institutions in London where the word "Bedlam" comes from. I was interested to note that "Under the Dome" was the title of the in-house magazine of the mental hospital. The magazine was named after the bird-cage cupola prominent on top of the hospital. I thought that was interesting and wondered if Stephen King knew of the connection? I was bemused that a mental hospital magazine from 1917 had the same name as a book that dissects human behaviour and was curious whether it was synchronicity.
