    My two friends were arguing about who counted more this morning in my Modern European class; Columbus or Erickson.

    In the discussion, Erickson made it to America first, but only to raid, capture slaves, and leave; but technically he found it first. Columbus made an "official" discovery, except for the fact that he came here second and thought it was an Asian Island. Plus, Columbus was a slave trader.

    In conclusion, we should get the entire week off to debate who really found America first and get our facts straight.

    Can we just do away with both? Native American's have been here for what... 8000 years? (since the last Ice Age) THEY discovered America, Columbus just inconveniences all of us...

    I hereby declare Columbus Day be renamed Inconvenience Day.

    Actually, many scientists today believe that the first Americans were in fact Western European on the east coast and Japaneseish on the west coast. So the so called 'discovery' of America by Columbus, the vikings, and Siberians is misleading...but misleading is what American history is all about.

    I agree. The only things Columbus did was rape the native women and steal the land for himself. And it wasn't REALLY America he discovered, but rather the islands and countries SOUTH of it.

    And the better title for his day should be "Columbus is a Douche Day."
