It does not seem right

We the tax payers paid a ton of money to have the reflecting pool fixed up and now "the Feds" say that all we can do is look at the pool (or listen to political speeches there.)
Model sailboat enthusiasts have sailed their models there for many years* but something has changed and changed for the worst. (See the Washington Post for Nov. 28 page B2 for a photo of sailboats on the Reflecting pool on April 30, 1935 where about 20 model sailboats are sailing. (and I have another photo from 1928 with 8 big models ( with masts about 8 foot high in the pool with the Linco;n Memorial in yhe background)
So the question is when and how do we get back our ability to sail radio controlled or freesailing model sailboats on the reflecting pools?
