1.  What did you last have to eat?

2.  What one good thing happened this week?

3.  Sun/Clouds or both?

4.  What celebrity would you trade a day for if you could and why? 
(Replace celebrity for anyone on this planet if you want).

5.  Do you call your evening meal dinner or supper?

Mt. Rushmore is offensive.  It's the equivalent of someone going to the Sistine Chapel and overpainting the ceiling with a rendition of the Signing of the Declaration of Indepedence.

Offensive, Why?  Can you find president heads carved out like that any other place in the world? I think Mt.Rushmore would be amazing to see some time.

The problem with Mt Rushmore is that seeing it in person is no different from viewing a photograph. You stand in the parking lot and gawk at it. The end.

Because the Black HIlls and that mountain in particular, are (and were) the most sacred religious places of the Lakota Indians, and were granted to them by treaty by the US Government in the 1800s.  And then the US government took them back and permitted a member of the KKK to deface them with the carvings.

I have respect for the religious beliefs of others and don't think their sacred places should be stolen and defaced.  I'm funny that way.
