Happy Columbus Day!

Of course, this will always be an interesting anniversary for me. However, that is in the fading past, let us remember the daring and courage it took to cross the Atlantic 514 years ago and sparked the eventual spread of western civilization into the Americas that eventually resulted in the establishment of our republic. That achievement, though not Columbus's, would not have been possible without his voyage, and for that we should and do salute him.
