Happy Columbus Day!

We don’t mean it in a harmful way. The urge for conquest, domination, and wanting others to believe as we, is part of what we carry in our genetic baggage. But, as the Katherine Hepburn character (a spinster missionary in southwest Africa) says to the Humphrey Bogart character (gin-swilling riverboat captain) in The African Queen:

“Nature, Mr. Allnut, is what we are put in this world to rise above.”
