Should the Arroyo Grande Cemetery start watering its grass again?

Yes. It looks ugly and that's disrespectful to the families who come there to mourn.
They should water it a little more, but stay mindful of the state's drought.
No they need to find an alternative like dryscaping.
Leave it as is. Saving water is more important than aesthetics.

I thought of my time in combat in Korea. Just a few questions: Why was my helmet called a piss-pot? Where do you potty in a foxhole, revetment, or bunker, and what do you do for toilet paper? How often do you take a shower and where? Even in our rest area, the “outhouse” had four holes in a board over some barrels, and there was no privacy as I sat alongside a guy only a foot away from me.

Let’s see now, um, how will that work?
