"City commissioners in Sandusky, Ohio, have eliminated Columbus Day and instead designated Election Day as a holiday."


Now to wake up the rest of the country.

I thought you were praising, probably sarcastically, the other Sandusky. . .

The Catholic Church, the Mormon Church, Penn State. . .

Penn State Wrestling has the best coach in the country. Cael Sanderson of Heber City, Utah - and yes, he is mormon. 159-0 in college, Olympic Gold and now has Penn state with 7 Championships in 9 years since taking over the position. Before that their last Title was 1953.

of Mormons and wrestling: It was a Mormon (Larry Owings) who gave Dan Gable the only loss of his college wrestling career. Owings delivered the loss in the final match of Gable’s final year of college wrestling.

You need a holiday to vote??

We in Washington state have been voting by mail for years, it seems to work okay, takes only a few minutes and you don't need to pay the postage.

I personally like the idea of having picture ID to vote, but it's too upsetting and a burden for some people.

Where I live you can't go to garbage dump without a picture id.

I moved back to Utah in June 2015, from Las Vegas. I always voted there and usually there were so few people who came it didn't take long at all. The longest I remember waiting was about 30 minutes one year when it was at the local mall.

When I got to Utah, I think when I signed up for my new Utah Driver License, I was told about Vote By Mail. And ever since, I've been voting by mail, although I do kind of miss going to the polling place; I could still go vote but haven't.

I can't imagine not voting one way or another. And I vote largely so I can vote against the a**hole that I don't support; sometimes I get my way and sometimes not.

Population: about 26,000

(Oh boy, I thought Salt Lake City was small)

Q: What's the capital of Ohio?

Q: And who is it named after?

A: That's right...

Q: And what is its population?

A: That one's a little tougher. I have ~880,000, and Forbes says "it is booming."

The Google God tells me Sandusky's biggest claim to fame is Charles Dickens once stayed there and actually mentioned it in his writings.

/class dismissed

Addendum: We've had this discussion before, and yes, Columbus Day remains a federal holiday. Columbus wasn't the first person to "discover" the Americas. He was the last, however, and it stayed "discovered."
