Best of 2005: Slickest Landscaping Job

Redskins owner Dan Snyder did some remodeling

Redskins owner Dan Snyder cut down 130 trees that impeded the view from his $10-million estate to the Potomac River. The move, approved by the National Park Service, angered environmentalists and Montgomery County officials, who imposed some $40,000 in fees and fines against Snyder.
