Paddy Celebrates the Big Five-0

Paddy Celebrates the Big Five-0

I posted this logo in honor of the Wifey (a noted Paddy-fan).

Personally, I would have preferred a Google logo celebrating the arrival of Columbus’s three boats in the Zoo World.  But, we know how good Google is with commemorating special events.

Meanwhile, the typical historical sorrymen don’t lament Google’s selection criteria.

We all love the idea, the ideal of America, but that’s not the same as overtly approving imperial conquest and the annihilation of native cultures. Unfortunately, a celebration of Christopher Columbus, the man, is perforce a celebration of slave-running and the violent imposition of Catholicism on an unwilling populace.
