Columbus Day

While it is common to pillory Christopher Columbus these days as the bringer of hate, greed, and misery to the western hemisphere, in the wake of the nation's centennial it was suggested publicly to Catholics that as American Catholics there is not anyone who more deserves our grateful remembrance than the great and noble man - the pious, zealous, faithful Catholic, the enterprising navigator, and the large-hearted and generous sailor: Christopher Columbus.

I wonder what it is about the man we've forgotten in the last 132 years.
