In an article in Human Events, which brings us “Powerful Conservative Voices,” Robert J. Marks II took it as self-evident that there’s more information in a typical image of Mount Rushmore than in one of Mount Fuji. Jeff Shallit sent him a gentle request for a calculation, and later a reminder.
Investigating the problem, I found that it’s hard to come by comparable images of Rushmore and Fuji. However, I remembered that when another powerful conservative voice, Michele Bachmann, called for the addition of Ronald Reagan, James Garfield, and Calvin Coolidge to Rushmore, it came out that George W.M.D. Bush had covertly added them, and also himself, to the opposite side.
Now, if Bob associates much less meaningful information with these monumental asses than with the visages on the flip side, he’ll get no argument from me.
