Why do we celebrate Columbus Day? I think it's insulting to credit a man for finding something that wasn't lost in the first place. Here is a man that sailed a ship drunk, thought the world was flat, and landed in the West Indies. (Not the US) He is credited for discovering a land that was populated py people. (Just because the people didn't look like him that doesn't mean that they didn't count.) It sounds to me as though it's just an excuse to take the day off and I bet people couldn't name one thing that was fair about that holday. (How would you like it if we had Michael Jorden day (Forgive me if I mispelled his name please.) and credited him for inventing basketball or saying that Steven segal invented marshal arts. (LOL, I'll celebrate those holidays with a straight face.) How about if I said Margaret Chao is the standard of beauty that we should emulate? Here is my personal favorite, Michael Jackson day because he is the "Godfather of Soul." Let me allow you time to ponder the post.
