One of the more interesting spots at Mt. Rushmore is a small cave-like area just below the sculpted likenesses of Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Teddy Roosevelt. If you walk into this short cave, you’ll find a crack in the back wall that nicely frames these guys (especially Washington). Of course, no one is finding this spot at the moment. Mt. Rushmore is closed. Poor George is probably wondering where everybody went. Or maybe he knows what’s going on in our highly dysfunctional country. Maybe if the responsible idiots who caused this nonsense could be tricked into gathering at the base of Rushmore George could cause some rocks to break lose and flatten a few of their empty heads.
Yeah, it’s a fantasy. But you have to wonder what George and Tom and Abe and Teddy might say if they suddenly became animate again. They’d probably all fall down and go boom. Why, after all, would they want to stay up there while the world just laughs at our silliness?
