Anyone else thinks it's weird that we build all these monuments to essentially, politicians, like Mount Rushmore? (And there's countless more statues and monuments that we pay for and maintain.) I propose a new Mount Rushmore, one with people that made a real difference in our lives. REAL difference: 1) Willis Carrier - Invented Air Conditioning 2) Philo Farnsworth - Invented Television 3) Thomas Edison - Light Bulb 4) John Harrington - Flushing Toilet Maybe throw in Karl Benz & Charles Babbage, & others. And what's up with all these 'Presidential Libraries' that we pay for and maintain? To hell with that, sell the buildings and give Presidents their own room or computer terminal in the Smithsonian.
