Well, good for this guy. But I have to respectfully disagree with the author that Columbus ought to be celebrated. Nevermind the fact that he "discovered" a country where people already lived.
I suggest you all read "Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong" by James Loewen. I actually own it if someone wants to borrow it. You learn a lot about actual history in this book rather than the text books which are allowed or blocked based on some arbitrarily assembled review committee. One of the biggest chapters is about Columbus. A good read.
