Columbus Day Open Thread

We won’t be celebrating Columbus Day, but we will be taking the day off from our regular scheduled posting. Mark Anthony Rolo writes, “For American Indians, Columbus Day is not a typical holiday. We don’t celebrate 500 years of being dominated, exploited, enslaved and nearly exterminated by Europeans. But we do celebrate our survival.”
