Happy Columbus Day!

So there's this guy. He really defines "hero," if by that we mean he got lost and didn't know what he was doing, then did what he could to pursue state-sponsored terrorism. What does it mean to be a state sponsor of terrorism? Here's what the State Department says:


In order to designate a country as a State Sponsor of Terrorism, the Secretary of State must determine that the government of such country has repeatedly provided support for acts of international terrorism

That hits the nail on the head for our guy and his state. Ironically, at one point he was around Guantánamo, though there weren't any suspected terrorists there yet.

But back to our story. He was directly and indirectly responsible for many deaths, which didn't bother him much because he was intent on making a lot of money and preventing freedom of religion. He wasn't very good at the former, but excellent at the latter. He was so good at abusing people that the government put him on trial.

He's dead now, but if he were alive he'd probably be bitterly disappointed that slavery is gone and indigenous people are allowed to walk around freely. Perhaps his main positive legacy is providing you with discounts at various stores for an annual sale.

Happy Columbus Day!
