I'm still trying to get used to this observance being moved up two days! This also happens to fall on our Fall Break
Here are a few links you can use next year--if they still exist about Columbus
The Wikipedia article which identifies at least two alternative holiday names by PC Here and a mention of Indigenous People's Day which Wikipedia redirects to the Columbus Day article. The debate will continue.
I found the Indigenous site via Librarians Internet Index which by the way has had a major face lift!
And I just received word that the webpages for the ACL 2006 Conference are up. Too bad they didn't include the hilarious promotional video shown at last year's conference.
