Tom,

Other C-day news. The Red October Sub Shop in Staten Island recently named two sangweeches for noteworthy Italians-Americans. One is called the Columbus because he invented Italian-Americans and the other is called the Carl Paladino, partly because it's shaped like a penis, and partly because so much shit spills out of it when you go to lift it to eat it, it reminds you of the "conservative" candidate's mouth.

Congrats again to us Italian-Americans. Personally, I'm very proud of Mr. P.

As far as Columbus not deliberately waging germ warfare on the native population, who knows. You get a lot of your info from Wikipedia. But it could be you're right. But then, it could be he was too stupid to realize he could have done it if he wanted. Point is, millions died, on purpose or by accident and it's time to move on. As Tony Soprano used to say, in that show you watched regularly in order to know just how detrimental it was to Italian-Americans -- "Whadaya gonna do?"

Anyway, here's to our Admiral Of The Ocean Seas. It's a shame he died penniless but he's not the first Italian-American to be screwed over by the big boys.

We love him. "Sail on, sail on, sailor!"

Columbus wrote to the Spanish monarchs in 1493: "It is possible, with the name of the Holy Trinity, to sell all the slaves which it is possible to sell...Here there are so many of these slaves, and also brazilwood, that although they are living things they are as good as gold..."

Columbus wrote to a friend in 1500: "A hundred castellanoes (a Spanish coin) are as easily obtained for a woman as for a farm, and it is very general and there are plenty of dealers who go about looking for girls; those from nine to ten (years old) are now in demand."

Columbus never set foot on American or North American soil. He landed in Puerto Rico, Cuba and Central America and Venuzuela, Which leads me to the question that I have been asking for 60 years: Why do we celebrate him in the U.S.A.? We should be celebrating the Vikings for discovering America..."Ya Think"?

Boy oh boy -- more late breaking news about Columbus day. I don't know how you feel about Carl "Tiny Cazzis" Paladino's comments about gays but you want to talk about Bobadillo? Turns out Bobo, as he called himself, and many of the boys below decks were carrying like ferrets down there. The ship's surgeon kept wondering what kept happening to his store of duck fat.

Nobody has stated that the Admiral of The Ocean Seas was himself a finook or participated in the goings on. I don't believe it to be true. But so randy was the Italian and Spanish crew that the joke at the time, all around Spain and southern Europe, was that Nino had his bowsprit up Pinto's stern all the way across.

Carl "Tiny Cazzi's" Paladino should inform himself of this Italian history before discriminating against people.

Bruno you are cracking me up!

Tom,

Sad news. One of the Italian-American "minstrel show" performers, one of your I-A "Stepinfetchits", Denise Borino Quinn, of Roseland, who played Ginny Sack onThe Sopranos , that show you watched repeatedly to definitively certify its negative impact on Italians, died of cancer at age 46. She worked in a nail salon. Without acting experience, she, as you know, turned out true and moving portraits of humanity.

Bizarrement, pour un même type d'agression, les photos illustrant les articles concernant G.TRON sont nettement moins harceleuses que celles passées par Libé pour DSK ... qui ne s'est pas privé (comme tous les journaux français d'ailleurs) de lyncher l'homme DSK accusé avant même qu'il soit jugé !
