Columbus Day Thoughts

Christopher Columbus: Super-Fraud.

Today is Columbus Day, and wops across the nation are celebrating their favorite explorer. A true Aye-talian who had to beg and scrounge for expedition money from Spain! A true Aye-talian who "discovered" a new continent, even though he thought he was India. (Because the folks of the Caribbean look exactly like Hindus!) A true Aye-talian who is given credit with discovering America, when Denny will tell you that Leif Ericson - or was it Leif Garrett? - got here much earlier.

Ya know, one time I stumbled over an opened packet of Pez. Maybe someone will have a parade for me.

Whenever I think of Columbus, I am reminded of that line in Seinfeld: "Oh, like they wouldn't have found that anyway."
