Happy Columbus Day

In fourteen hundred and ninety two, 
Columbus sailed the ocean blue

...and here we are.

If we were honest and self-confident, we'd name it as Conquering Peoples Day and celebrate the European transformation of the Western Hemisphere, as we used to.

Signor Colombo was in the employ of Ferdinand and Isabella, who had just completed the seven-hundred year old war of liberation of the Christian native peoples of Spain against the imperialist and colonialist Muslim power invading from North Africa...which was itself once part of the Christian Roman Empire, which had then become Muslim due to the imperialism and colonialism of the Arabs' invading and conquering armies.

Grazie, Cristoforo.

Google is apparently unaware of what day it is...

The Google Lords could have presented a picture of Columbus and Hitler with an equal sign between them. But they didn't, and you should be glad about this, even if they refrain'd only because they didn't want to receive a bunch of email grief from all those conservative cranks out there.

What were you hoping for? A picture of an Aztec human-sacrifice pyramid with blood running down the steps?

You always have a way of reframing an issue toward the heart of the matter...
