Columbus Day 2016 | October 10, 2016

With all the post Matthew distractions, we forgot to say Happy Columbus Day. He was, we hear, a reasonably competent sailor (although marginal to windward). This painting of Columbus Landing is in the US Capitol Rotunda. Flowery verbiage from the Capital web site:

Columbus, newly landed from his flagship Santa Maria, looks upward as if in reverent gratitude for the safe conclusion of his long voyage. He stands bareheaded, with his feathered hat at his feet, in an expression of humility.
Post Matthew, we also have that reverent gratitude, plus the humility thing.
