This informative post will be posted on Saturday along with my usual writing.  We can all appreciate some of the lesser known facts from around the world.

Charles Rushmore was a young attorney sent from New York City to South Dakota in 1885 to check on mining titles in the Black Hills.  When he singled out one of the mountains and inquired about its name, his guide, William Challis, shot back that it did not have one, but suggested they could “just call the damn thing Rushmore.”

Before she found fame as an author and sex therapist, Dr. Ruth Westheimer was trained as a sniper in the Israeli army.

These facts have been discovered in I NEVER KNEW THAT by David Hoffman (2009).
