Split off from another thread: WashPo and Indian Country Media posted a couple of good articles about the upcoming 'holiday'. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs...10/08/columbus-day-how-is-this-still-a-thing/ Further, from ICTMN, someone wondered why every other country in the world ignores Columbus: https://indiancountrytodaymedianetwork.com/2014/10/08/do-other-countries-celebrate-columbus-day So with all due respect to Berkeley, Minneapolis, South Dakota, and Seattle, Why do we still even have a Columbus Day? He wasn't the first one here, and his actions while here were as deplorable as Milosevic, Mladic, and Hutu. So why are we still even celebrating this? BL.
