Columbus Day: Celebrate or Protest?
Today is a federal holiday, but not everybody is celebrating.
Schools, post offices, banks and most government buildings are closed today in observance of Columbus Day, the federal holiday recognizing Christopher Columbus and his 1492 "discovery" of America.
While this is a day of celebration for plenty of people, others say Columbus is not a man to celebrate and look at him as the person who triggered an era that brought disease and violent destruction to the people of the "New World."
