You'd think that today would be a day to celebrate our boy Chris Columbus considering there are statues of the guy and that "Columbus Day" is printed on everyone's calendar, but NO.  He gets blamed for everything from bringing small pox to America to him being the reason for mattress sales.  To give him credit, he and his boys crossed the Atlantic freaking ocean in three small sailboats without a GPS or Google maps for crying out loud.  I say we stop tearing down statues, admit our history, and learn from our mistakes.  Keep in mind that Mattress Firm did not learn from their mistakes and (reality check) they are now officially bankrupt.  Hello.
