When we visited a year or two ago, it was obvious that no NPS personnel were there. It also was obvious that no one was concerned with maintaining the property surrounding the memorial. The grass was high and full of weeds, and the entire area looked neglected.

Could the WWII Veterans' Memorial become the new "Commons", a la Kent State in 1970?

I know, I noticed that too!  The whole Mall area looked crappy, weedy and awful.  No funds for that I guess--it all goes to pensions.
