Scientist Mount Rushmore 
Sunday, February 15th, 2009 | 01:49 pm [science]
Thursday in my article about the 200th birthdays of Lincoln and Darwin, I mentioned that I thought Darwin belonged on the Mount Rushmore of scientists, alongside Galileo, Newton and Einstein. I also asked why the hell there is no Scientist Mount Rushmore — have we run out of mountains or something? President Obama is all about the public works projects to get people back to work, so I say get moving! I realize it might ruffle some feathers, since that Crazy Horse monument has been a work in progress for like sixty years and is still pretty much just a head, but I say the hell with it! If fucking Jefferson Davis can have a gigantic bas relief in Georgia, then Darwin and his fellow men of science ought to have a mountain for themselves, too.

Here is how it might look:

Einstein was obviously not taking this seriously.

Is this a reasonable science Mount Rushmore? Is there anyone who deserves a spot up there that I left off, someone who deserves to knock that old fart Newton or that young whippersnapper Einstein off the mountain?
