Re "Defining, Deifying Reagan in History," April 3: The thought of Ronald Reagan's visage being carved into Mt. Rushmore is, to put it mildly, sickening. Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt all presided over administrations steeped in strong moral character and integrity. Reagan presided over an administration soaked to the gills in greed, selfishness, dishonesty and arrogance. It's high time that Harry Truman's features were carved into the mountain. As opposed to Reagan, Truman is the epitome of virtue and would fit in just fine!
