You heard me. I didn't stutter. Happy Columbus Day!
Aren't we glad that guy was crazy enough not just to believe the world is round, but to believe he could sail all the way to China or India in those tiny little ships? Yes, we are. And thank you, Spain, for the funding.
Here in Los Angeles, the City won't celebrate the occasion at all because, well, he wasn't Latino, was he? There are, however, events galore to celebrate "Latino Heritage Month," because here in L.A., it's not what you achieve that's important, it's the color of your skin that makes you special.
Indeed, the City of Los Angeles has prepared an 88-page guide to Latino Heritage Month, "presented by Antonio Villaraigosa" and the Department of Cultural Affairs, using your tax money.
Plus, your money paid for a Latino Heritage Month poster competition and writing competition, and God only knows how many special "events" for a purely, expressly, overtly race-based celebration.
I guess that's why they couldn't afford a Columbus Day Parade, or Fourth of July Parade, huh?
