    The irony of the word, "holiday".
    Martin L. King died 4 equal rights, got assasinated, N again that we mourne... I understand. A guy says the world is says the world is round N he gets kudos 4 it. J.F.K. died 4 his beliefs, but was remembered 4 so much more. I find it all ironic, the land that Chris obviously stepped on had humans, not dinosaurs...

    its definatly a bs holiday, my husband is part native american and I had to sit here and explain to my children yesterday that it shouldn't be a holiday in honor of christopher columbus. That native americans already lived here and he wasn't even the first non-native american to ever land in america. Which was kind of confusing for elementary school children when that's all they are being taught in school!!

    First, Columbus did not "discover" anything. As another guest has mentioned, the land was already occupied. But for those who say, ok if we're going to argue over semantics, then he is the first "non-native," again, no dice. That honor goes to a Spanish man. And for all of those who apparently need help with information gathering and research skills, I'll leave you to "discover" who that man is.

    all this for a man who thought the world was flat.

    Military personnel (even overseas) get 2 days off for Columbus day. Hell I'll take that for a little extra time to spend with my hubby. If ya do get Columbus Day off you should be voting yes it's legit. Who wouldn't want an extra day off work?

    He gets flak because he couldn't discover something that was already occupied. That's like me getting credit for discovering your house.
