Columbus Day

Today is a National Holiday for some…it’s the government observance of Columbus Day. No wonder school kids can’t remember history; the government keeps changing the dates.

Christopher Columbus landed in the Bahamas on October 12, 1492…not America, as some have said, or East Asia as he thought.

Odd, don’t you think, that we celebrate the date an Italian sailor got lost and actually ended up spreading all manner of vile diseases through out the islands he “discovered?"
