Adam Irish at Greater Greater Washington has a suggestion for a money-saving and green-friendly solution to keeping the grass clipped at the White House and on the National Mall. How about bringing in some sheep? You may scoff, but back in the day, President Woodrow Wilson brought a flock to the White House grounds.
