BLACK HILLS, S.D. -- The difference between the Crazy Horse monument and Mount Rushmore is the difference between the quick and the dead. I can't prove it, no more than Einstein could prove that imagination is more important than knowledge. But it's true. Some patriots may disagree, violently perhaps, yet the red man is alive and the four white guys are dead. I am no noodle-brained new-ager, but a good Catholic boy, grateful to be a second-generation American. And I am here in South Dakota to tell you that something is present at Crazy Horse and absent at Rushmore.

Your article about Michael Phelps ' prospects for being on Baltimore's Mount Rushmore of athletes made me think who else could be compared to its towering figures ("Make room on our Rushmore," Aug. 5). James Rouse would be George Washington, Thomas Jefferson could be Walter Sondheim, Franklin Roosevelt would be William Donald Schaefer and Teddy Roosevelt would be the recently retired Jay Brodie. These great men had the courage, vision and intelligence to take a rat- infested harbor of the 1950s and turn it into a vibrant economic engine of success that we can all be proud of. The next generation of Baltimore leaders may well hail from the world of technology.

"Rushmore" is a comedy for which the word "quirky" seems to have been invented.This lovable little oddball of a film will appeal to audiences who can laugh at high-school plays adapted from Oliver Stone movies, and accept without a smirk the concept of a middle-aged man finding his best friend in a 15-year-old boy.Told through the fish-eye lens of a teen-ager's obsessive, self-aggrandizing vision, "Rushmore" -- which often resembles a contemporized, bizarro version of "The Graduate" -- will also appeal to anyone who can find its nerdy hero enchanting, despite his grating eccentricities.

Former Gov. Bob Ehrlich had lots of options when he hired Julius Henson , the bad-boy political operative behind the robocall that urged Baltimore voters to "relax" and stay home from the polls on Election Day. Henson's Universal Elections offers a range of campaign packages, all named for U.S. presidents. The faces of our nation's greatest leaders are arrayed on Universal's website like an expanded Mount Rushmore, each one paired with a list of goods and services named in his honor.

WHEN RONALD REAGAN left the White House a decade ago, some adoring fans proposed that his face be added to the profiles of four presidents carved on the side of Mount Rushmore.Mercifully, this nutty notion failed to catch on, Reagan's place in history being something less than secure. But the idea is back. A conservative group has appointed itself the guardian of Reagan's legacy and is crusading to put his mug on the famous South Dakota mountain and his name on buildings, bridges, roads and other miscellaneous stationary objects in every state.

When Keith Burden, our designated singing cowboy, recognized my request for an obscure Western anthem I listened to as a kid, I knew we were on the right wagon. No matter that I remembered it as Jingle Jangle and he knew it as Ringle Rangle. Keith strummed his guitar as we sang of a contented cowhand who had "a dollar's worth of beans, a new pair of jeans, and a woman to cook and clean ... and 'things.' " Pretty saucy stuff for what was billed as a "family-approved" attraction, but no one seemed to notice.

The political opposition researcher who illegally snooped into Michael Steele's credit history has found something else to stick her nose into: toilets. Lauren Weiner fraudulently posed as Steele on the Internet to obtain his credit history three years ago. At the time, she was a Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee researcher, and he was the lieutenant governor and a likely Republican candidate for Senate. These days, Weiner is a potty blogger. On fullyflushed.blogspot.com, she digs up dirt on public johns.

BLACK HILLS, S.D. -- Borglum or Ziolkowski? Within a day of arrival in the Black Hills of South Dakota, you'll run into this question, probably somewhere along U.S. 16 as you roll between two of the largest sculpted mountains on Earth. Gutzon Borglum's Mount Rushmore, of course, is your old friend from elementary school, and you think you know it well. Begun in 1927. Completed in 1941. Scrambled upon by Cary Grant in 1959's North by Northwest and, more recently, Nicolas Cage in National Treasure: Book of Secrets.

Start with Rushmore, which gets the better morning light. It's an easy 24-mile drive from Rapid City, S.D., (where the airport is) and only three miles from the ticky-tacky tourist town of Keystone just down the hill. If you show up early enough, you'll get a shaded parking place. From the Grand View Terrace, you can follow the half-mile loop trail that takes you to the base of the mountain and the sculptor's studio. As you move, the clouds drift and the sun advances, the faces change.

Facing Rushmore David Lozell Martin Simon & Schuster / 260 pages David Martin is a writer who defies pigeonholing. He's tried his hand at a sweeping love story, a serial-killer thriller and an erotic New Orleans tale, but Facing Rushmore may be his weirdest, most audacious book. It begins conventionally enough with FBI agent Charlie Hart's interrogation of John Brown Dog, a Native American dissident who may be implicated in the mysterious, seemingly causeless destruction of the St. Louis Gateway Arch.
