Mount Rushmore to get laser treatment

By Joe Foy, U.S.A. TODAY
The solemn faces of Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln are due for a face lift.   Crews from Scotland and California will shoot controlled lasers at the Mount Rushmore National Memorial as part of a beautifying project, known as “Monument Rehabilitation”. Project director Sid Finch stated in his press conference that “This project will give us and consulting plastic surgeons a chance to youthify national monuments… We‘re actually using some of the contours of George Clooney’s face for Abraham Lincoln, it’s quite revolutionary.” The monument rehabilitation project doesn’t stop there. In 2012 The Statue of Liberty is due for a makeover, says Finch “Lady Liberty looks a little zaftig these days and we’re going to slim her down a bit. The best way to describe it would be architectural liposuction. It‘s our intention to get Lady Liberty in Maxim magazine, if you know what I mean.” Mount Rushmore will be open to the public while the work is being done.
