Happy Columbus Day

Just because it pisses all the right people off. And I'm not talking about the natives, either.

Yes, I realize there were people here when he got here. And I realize injustices were purputrated on those people. But that's not the whole story, and America wouldn't be America were it not for this event.

Sailed across the Atlantic 317 years ago when the powers that be thought he'd sail off the edge of the world. But it's round, round, baby, right round. And, IMHO, we'd still be speculating about what the moon is really like had this not been done. There wouldn't be throngs of Obama voters, because there wouldn't be voters. And no iPods to play their Obama-praising songs and Michael Moore movies on.

Big event.
