Mt. Rushmore Presidents To Get Sun Visors?

KEYSTONE, S.D. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt may soon be getting relief from the sun at Mount Rushmore – in the form of sun visors.

The Proshade eyeware company is offering $4 million to the National Park Service that it wants to be spent on restoring and repairing the giant granite sculpture.

In return, the company would be allowed to put giant visors on the heads of the presidents for a two-year period.

Richard Lawrence figures his plan honors both the men who made this country great and their values.

He admits some people might reject turning Mount Rushmore into an ad but he figures it’s “better than letting the mountain crumble.”

A spokesperson for Mount Rushmore was unavailable for comment.
