As Matt says:
As if #1 were not an important enough legacy to the US, our country used to be referred to as Columbia (a feminization of Columbus’ name). Our unofficial national anthem (before “The Star Spangled Banner”) was “Hail, Columbia”. So, to everyone, I wish you all a Happy Columbus Day and all Hail Columbia!!!!!!!
Beth Cooper was saying to me the other day that his films are getting better and better – not bad for a detective who sailed halfway round the world.
