Best Lawnmower Man

Chris Cox

Staff Pick

When the federal government partially shut down for 16 days in October, one face instantly became recognizable, the bearded mug of wild-haired Mt. Pleasant chainsaw artist Chris Cox. The woodcutter put down his chainsaw, grabbed a lawn mower and weed-whacker, and went to work cutting the grass around the monuments in Washington, D.C. when the grounds crew was furloughed. And just like that, a national folk hero was born.
