Happy Columbus Day to everybody. Columbus Day, and how you feel about it reveals a lot. My pal Ralphie went to law school at UCLA and his wife went to St. John's. At SJU, Columbus Day is very festive. The students crack open a bunch of kegs, play a lot of music, and a good time is had by all. At UCLA, it's a different story. Columbus Day is treated like a funeral, with the oh so somber students wearing black armbands to reflect that Columbus was a genocidal maniac.
Who you identify with, the UCLA students or the SJU students, will tell you a lot about a person.
God Bless Christopher Columbus.
