Yes, yes, yes on Crazy Horse
I have been going to the Sturgis Bike Rally for 20 years. Crazy Horse is one place I go every year. They have a wonderful museum, an excellent movie, and reasonably priced souvenirs, snacks and food. The light show at night is not to be missed. They have refused government grants to help finish it. The reason I have been given was they want it to be finished without government help to preserve the integrity of the heritage of the monument. It is important to the Indians to do this without influence from the government One of the reasons it is taking so long is the size. Mount Rushmore would fit in the face of Crazy Horse. When you see the movie you will see how much rock has been removed so far. As far as riding the gravy train, that is nonsense. Using that logic now that Mount Rushmore is finished no one would come to see it any more. When Crazy Horse is finished tourism will increase, not decrease. There are a lot of wonderful things to see in that area and I would put Crazy Horse at the top of that list.
