I wonder if Columbus Day has enough significance to close the post office, banks, and government offices. I don’t know that much about Christopher Columbus. But he must have taken a wrong turn somewhere to be banned from setting foot again on an island he discovered and where he established a colony. It seems he was strong on courage and short on character. His brutal treatment of both natives and colonists barred him from returning to Hispaniola and excludes him from greatness.
