If you have ever paddled a canoe, slept in a hammock, ate at a barbecue, smoked tobacco or tracked a hurricane, you have paid tribute to the Arawak, the Iindigenous people who invented those words long before they welcomed Christopher Columbus to the New World in 1492.

Christopher Colombus was NOT a hero,and did NOT discover America and should NOT be credited or appraised for doing such,furthermore had Colombus done some of the things now that he had done then,he would have gotten the death penalty by todays laws. Therefore we would like everyone who feels the same way to call in (Or write if you feel so inclined) to The Lancaster County Courthouse in Pennsylvania to let them know that we would like the statue of Colombus to be taken down from the alleywalk behind the courthouse,and NOT to be re erected anywhere in Lancaster County PA.
