Perhaps you’ve seen photos of kids sledding on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., since the federal government and schools were closed on Thursday.
But, did you know they were breaking the law?
"No person shall coast or slide a sled within Capitol Grounds." Also, kite-flying and tricycles are prohibited. http://t.co/PrvShwSyKA

It’s true. From the Capitol Grounds Regulations, courtesy of the architect of the capitol’s office: “No person shall coast or slide a sled within Capitol Grounds.”
Bah … humbug.
