For me, it is the person that I wake up to every morning and fall asleep with everynight…For me, it is the person that everyone that encounters this person should feel privilaged everyday. For everyone, it should not necessarily be a famous person from history, it should be the one person in someone’s personal life that made a difference…what do YOU think?

Certainly one of the all time greats is the inventor of in-door plumbing.

In any case, a monument is warranted, even it has to be for “The Unknown Inventor”.
I feel strongly about this, having been subjected to an outhouse in east Texas in my youth. There were spiders down there!!
In the winter it was real cold also.
