On this day in 1492 Christopher Columbus landed in the Bahamas. Of course he didn't call it that though.
I'm not a Columbus basher, I think the guy did something that needed to be done. I am sorry that so many people caught the short end of the stick.
Isn't it interesting that desease was the greatest killer of the peoples living in the Americas in the 16th century? I heard on the Discovery channel last night that 95% of the population died. That sounds like just the kind of pain and suffering that Cthulhu would have loved.
