Today we celebrate Columbus Day. Christobal Colon, Cristoforo Columbo, or Christopher Columbus... no matter what you call him, today we celebrate his discovery of the Americas and Christianization of the western hemisphere. Or not depending on what book you read. Do yourself a favor if you have the day off and read a few articles about the man and his deeds, and not just his Wikipedia entry, because you know his publicist is all over that.
