Happy Bartolomé Day — and a reminder…

So here’s a question:  Why do we continue to celebrate Columbus Day?  I admit I appreciate having a day off from school, but really, don’t we all know about Christopher Columbus yet?  What a really bad person he was?  I think Agent Coulson would have described him as “Poop.  With needles.”

In case you don’t know yet what I’m talking about (the Columbus part), check out this comic from the Font of Awesomeness that is The Oatmeal.  The Oatmeal is typically hilarious and informative, and this time it’s even more informative than usual.  And also well done (not unusual).

And since our government still hasn’t gotten its act together — but then what can we expect from people who still celebrate Christopher Columbus? — you still have time to participate in my Government Shutdown Haiku Contest.  Click here for more information and to see the entries so far and to post an entry yourself.

Happy Bartolomé Day!
