So I guess I’ll just have to sit here like Leif Ericson in New England until other Columbi (plural of Columbus?) decide to plant their flag on this wonderful new world of common sense and scientifically-backed conclusions.
Many would default to the notion that revisionism of the Columbus story is a politically-correct act of sophistry engaged in by elitists and malcontents. They might argue that any reevaluation of Columbus Day is cynical because there is no absolute standard of good an evil; everything is just a matter of degrees and subject to moral relativism right? I mean Lincoln was probably a racist and MLK had affairs. So why not give Christopher Columbus a bye here?
