Response to Let's keep Sherman Adams' name on the summit building
> Let's put another building on the summit where climbers and visitors can stop for a cold beer, and name the building after a great American patriot. We could call it the Samuel Adams building.
I certainly enjoy a cold brew after the hike, but hiking down from the summit under the influence might be a tad dangerous. A fall off Tuckerman's or Lion's Head could easily be fatal.
Add to that the fact that hikers loath buildings (and roads and railways) to summits ...
