... Crazy Horse and Mount Rushmore monuments.

We talked a little more about the history of the monuments, as well as the people and historical significance behind them. Since Alex hasn't had US history yet, he doesn't have the context of the US's treatment of the natives under Manifest Destiny.

As we stopped talking about US history, we tuned up XM Radio's Radio Classics. What we got was ironic - first an episode of 'Ft. ...
