Leveling the battlefield to aid terrorists enables evil to fight on
Topic - Nancy Striniste
On a recent summer morning, Nancy Striniste was perched on the gently sloping roof of her front porch, pulling a few weeds. Unlike the other houses in Ms. Striniste's Arlington neighborhood, hers has a porch roof covered in vegetation, one example of a small but growing trend among environmentally conscious homeowners.
She said people routinely slow down as they drive by to look at the roof.
The roof required regular watering after it was first built, Ms. Striniste said, much as any new garden would, but once the plants were established, she no longer had to water it.
