Something for everyone

To our readers of Italian descent: Happy Columbus Day.

To our friends in the Upper Midwest: Happy Leif Erikson Day (not to be confused with Leif Garrett Day).

To our Native American readers: Happy Not Having Been Discovered Yet Day.

To our Canadian friends: Happy Thanksgiving (also known as Not Having Been Absorbed By America Yet Day).

To Beatles fans: Happy John Lennon's Birthday.

To my fellow devotees of the film Streets of Fire, Happy Michael Paré's Birthday.

To the folks at the FOX Broadcasting Company: Happy 20th Anniversary, and thanks for all the 24.

To all those not previously included: Happy Monday, and if you happen not to like Mondays, please don't go shoot up a school or anything.

Finally, in honor of Columbus Day, here's my Top Five Favorite Films Directed by Chris Columbus:

Oh man, I fell in love with Elizabeth Shue in that movie.

And the scene in the blues club is one of my all time favorites.

You're missing four in your list. Didn't you like Sixteen Candles?

Rhea: You're welcome, and thanks for shopping here on your day off.

Mr. Fab: The scary thing is that Elisabeth Shue still looks just as gorgeous today. Albert Collins, unfortunately, does not.

Joel: Sixteen Candles was John Hughes, not Chris Columbus. And the list is as long as the qualifying candidates allow. :)
