Happy Columbus Day

Monday is Columbus Day for most of the US, but Seattle, WA., will be holding its first Indigenous Peoples' Day. It makes little difference as Columbus Day is not an official holiday in Washington. A councilman said it is,  "About taking a stand against racism." An opposing lawyer said people of Italian descent are "deeply offended." "By this resolution you say to all Italian-Americans that the city of Seattle no longer deems your heritage or your community worthy of recognition." Seems like politics never takes a holiday.
