"For Native Americans, Columbus Day should not be a day of celebration," said Mississippi Band Chief (Miko) Beasley Denson. "His arrival on our shores marked the beginning of centuries of exploitation of our people and our land. Much better that we should celebrate our rich culture and our traditions."
Speaking of Columbus Day, I've begun an intermittent series of postings on my Blue Corn Comics Twitter feed. They'll tell you what Columbus might've twittered on his first voyage if he'd had the technology. I'll probably collect them here eventually, but you'll have to follow me on Twitter if you want to read them in real time.
