Do you support changing Columbus Day to Explorers Day?

I guess Columbus history has grown icky over the years and Explorers would be more broad and honor guys like Neil Armstrong.



http://mehlville-oakville.patch.com/...e-columbus-day




OAKVILLE, MO -- Three locals are trying to change Columbus Day to Exploration Day.

The movement started in the living room of Karl Frank Jr. after TV reports of Neil Armstrong’s death. Frank—a Patch blogger and former Mehlville school board member—wanted to honor the astronaut's accomplishments.

Follow Mehlville-Oakville Patch on Facebook or sign up for our daily newsletter.

“I have never been a fan of having a Federal holiday named after Columbus's accidental conquest. Like my wife said when I mentioned this to her, ‘Why? Because saying he discovered America is like walking into a grocery store and saying you discovered milk?’” he said in a blog post about the effort.

Frank recruited friends Tom Diehl and Dr. Rod Wright. Diehl is a former Mehlville school board president and Wright is a political scientist and public relations specialist.

The group started a petition for the White House and needs 25,000 signatures by Sept. 27 for officials to review the petition. As of Monday night, their petition has 1,176 signatures.

The movement has officially gone national.

Wired’s Jeffrey Marlow wrote a story Sept. 7 calling for support because Columbus Day's popularity has been decreasing over the years.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch columnist Bill McClellan is also gathering votes for the group saying, “Christopher Columbus is to heroes what Pluto is to planets.”

Frank said Exploration Day would allow people to celebrate Columbus, but also any other explorer that’s made innovations in the physical or technological world.

Ridiculous. I kind of doubt a monkey could maneuver a spaceship to land on the moon, get out, do some experiments, get back in, re-launch the ship, dock with an orbiter, then fly back to earth.

Just want to add Buzz Aldrin in there. Buzz did the same thing Neil did, just a few minutes later. Plus, a few years ago when someone approached him and said the moon landings were a hoax, Buzz punched the guy in the face.

Not only did Columbo (his actual name) not discover America, he died never even realizing he'd been there.

I'm fine with changing it to Explorer's Day. The Italians will lose their minds over it, but who cares? Of course, I never get it off anyway, so they can call it "**** You Frazod Day" for all I care.

And you can take Andrew Jackon that cob sucker off our currency as well. He looks like Kinickie from grease anyhow.

And if any of yall have a problem with what i say you can lick my poondingy.
But he did from a European perspective. Of course it amuses me when people say he discovered America....two continents names for the person that is credit with actually finding the place...but whatever

Andrew Jackson is easily one of the greatest Americans to ever live. I realize that he was dishonest in his dealings with the Sioux Indians, but still one fo the greatest Americans to ever live.

I do really like the idea of expanding the holiday to include all explorers.

Columbus Day was a nod to Italian Americans back in the day. It has lost most of that connection over time. I like Explorers' Day much better personally.
