I figured that we're better off without a height limit at all. The economic arguments for it don't really apply anymore and I fail how to see how the presence of tall buildings make the monuments seem less important or make it seem like private interests trump the civic one. It's not as if regulating building height has an impact on the activities of lobbyists. It's the same whether they're in DC or out in Va.

Philadelphia has a mall and special monuments, it also has very tall buildings. The two complement each other in that city and it would be the same here. I work 5 blocks from the white house and can't see it. I still know its there.
