    Columbus Day. Why do we still celebrate a guy who DIDN’T discover America? He found a few islands in the Carribean and THOUGHT he was in China. And there were people here for, oh, about 15,000 years before Columbus missed the whole mainland. But I guess since they were not European, they don’t count…

    We like traditions. We started the holiday, and, by gum, we’re gonna continue it so long as there are three day holiday sales events to be taken advantage of. So get right down today, and SAVE, SAVE, SAVE!

    I guess its just the American way…How many people believe the Myth that Abner Doubleday invented Baseball? The game had been played for over 20 years before the date that Spalding set forth as the ‘official’ birth of the game. Ken Burns did a fantastic job in his PBS documentary telling the story of this wonderful game.

    Humans throughout history have embraced myths and fireside tales. So much of what we learn about American history amounts to children’s stories we got in grade school. I hope most adults don’t actually believe that Washington chopped down a cherry tree and told his father “I cannot tell a lie.” It’s doubtful that Ben Franklin flew a kite in a storm. It’s quite likely that he mentioned the idea as an hypothesis. Of course, Americans’ used to eat up tales like Paul Bunyan.

    Traditions are made to be started and stopped. This is one of those that have little meaning.

    Sure it does. Retail sales and a day off work.

    Where I’m living now, the kids had Friday off, and went back to school today. Seemed odd. Of course, there was still no mail.
