crazyhorse memorial, south dakota: one man and a blow torch started it all. the government tried to reward him, some of indians ignored him, but he denied and proved both wrong, in that order. would this crazyhorse condone the demolition of a natural wonder by some eccentric fool someone found at the world's fair in new york? for his name to live on, wouldn't it be more efficient if the mountain were dedicated to his memory instead of being blasted eighty-five percent of the way to nothingness? to be larger than rushmore: i'm not sure he would have wanted this.
