I read this in the Times or Guardian last year: When Gutzon Borglum was promoting his idea of carving faces into Mount Rushmore (1927-1941), many people were scandalized and incredulous. What a silly, useless notion! What a lack of respect for nature! Such pretension, such hubris! The project wasn’t popular with a substantial segment of the public.
The quote on my T-shirt is from an anonymous person who sounded off on the matter in a newspaper article of the time. It has a zaniness I find appealing.
