There was no mail at my house yesterday.

At first I thought that the mailman just hadn’t shown up.

Then It dawned on me that yesterday was Columbus day.  You remember that murdering white European who came to the Americas and brought nothing but death and despair to all the indigenous people of the Americas. And that despair is with them to this day. At least that is what they tell us.

Columbus is not politically correct.

So I was surprised that the Federal Government was still observing it. But it does mean a day off.

So many have stated that Columbus day should be abolished and replaced with Indigenous Peoples Day.

Well why not.
