Happy Genocide Day
When I turned on the news this morning to see a report on controversy over New York City's Columbus Day Parade, I expected the debate to be over whether Columbus Day should be a day of celebration or mourning (as I mentioned before). But no--apparently the issue was whether allowing actors from the Sopranos to march in his parade would be insulting to Italian Americans. Personally, I'd much rather be associated with actors who play television gangsters than a historically real greedy genocidal maniac. As usual, Lalo Alcaraz sums it up perfectly.
