It is Columbus Day so take a minute out of your busy day and appreciate all of the great things Columbus has given us. Without Columbus, Ohio would have no capital. Ohio would just be a big flat territory ruled by feuding warlords with cannibals running wild in the streets. In other words, it would be just like Cleveland only bigger. So thank-you Columbus! ::clapping::

P.S. For any of you that happen to live near Columbus, I suggest you celebrate the day by going to Hoggy's BBQ and having a big ol' rack of ribs!

Yep, lotsa myths surrounding Columbus and his discovery. When he got here he found stoneage savages, no wheel, no beast of burden, no metal, no written language. The Aztecs were practicing canibalism and human sacrifice on a grand scale. Columbus knew the world was round (actually, spereoid) and so did many others back before the birth of Christ. Eratosthenes actually calculated how far it was around Earth more than 200 years before the birth of Christ. Columbus' estimate was way off.

Hey Inor

I walked to the Post Office so as not have a pistol in the parking lot. I used the handicap blue button to open the doors. The side to the PO Boxes was open,the side where I get Money Orders from had the fence pulled down. I was going to send payment for my Matech USGI BUIS from a guy on our in state forum.

I completely missed Columbus Day. It really has little importance for me as I know that his "discovery" was neither the first not the last of its kind.
Native Americans were the third discoverers of the North American continent and they did a good job of not destroying it. It's a shame that the Europeans couldn't learn from them.

Makes me wonder if Columbus Day is celebrated at the post office on the reservation.
Columbus never set foot in North America. Why would the American Indians have a beef with him?

I do not have much direct experience with Youper Finns (that I know of). I have WAY TOO MUCH experience with NE Minnesota Finns. They are all Commies as I am sure MeanGreen will attest to.
