The Great Tourist

We had a three day weekend here in RI.  Meaning, for example, that garbage pickup will be tomorrow morning where most weeks it would have been this morning.  The 3dw is because Columbus Day was Saturday and they still needed a holiday for it.  I'm curious as to whether Columbus Day is as big a deal in the rest of the country.  I suspect it's not in most of it.  The Italian thing seems to make him sort of a local celebrity here.

The best song to ever come out of the holiday. Probably the best that ever could have come out of it.
