I have not written a word in months -- what a relief. Instead, I have been doing embroidery, which utilizes the ten fingers quite well, without the bother of publishing and facing a hostile world. Instead I have a selection of my fine needlework to enjoy.
A message to those many people who have responded to a previous post titled "Christopher Columbus was a Very Bad Man." Apparently, you read it literally, which is your business, but I wrote it as a satire, a send-up of revisionist history.
My own view of Christopher Columbus is traditional. I admire the man and what he did. I subscribe to the view of Samuel Elliot Morrison in his biography of Columbus.
