Columbus Day

What a boring Columbus Day. Not that I’m celebrating this day. hey, it’s another paid day off work. While reading about Columbus on Columbus Day, I stumbled upon the following:

8. Columbus was an opium addict, the same drug used in producing modern-day heroin.

9. There is genetic evidence that Columbus and his men brought the sexually transmitted disease Syphilis to Europe.

What an amazing hero! Just today’s thoughts…
