Cristoforo Colombo non ha scoperto un cazzo di niente, belìn!

Seattle is leading the way in hopefully beginning to eradicate a pointless celebration of a murderer. With a bit of luck, this (and a similar step in Minneapolis) are the first steps in a global reappraisal of what Columbus actually represents.

Italian Americans, however, are offended by this decision, apparently. Firstly, Columbus was not technically Italian as no Italy existed until years after his death. Secondly, I fail to see why a community would want to be represented by an opportunistic, genocidal maniac. As a result, I have taken the liberty of preparing a list of just some of great Italians who deserve a day to honor them.

You get the point.
