National mall to get new grass!

Wish that playing softball/kickball on the National Mall felt more like playing on a field than hardtop pavement?  Then you’re in luck because the National Mall is about to get a makeover, complete with new, lush grass.

The renewal process could cause some interruptions, but I think this is a major win for DC.  And the best part about it is that it’s being funded almost entirely by a private foundation — not by federal taxing and spending.
