      I always thought the Columbus statues were a PC sop to the 3 million Italian immigrants that poured into the the US at the beginning of the 20th century. Columbus represented a seminal Italian contribution to new world culture. And it Something other than the mafia, anyway.

      The ultimate target will be the Statue of Liberty and Mount Rushmore.
