There’s a lot going on in DC as the week opens, but for the moment we focus on two items. First off, the Republicans need to figure out who will be their next Speaker, a job that doesn’t appear to be one that anybody from the moderate majority of the party seems to want at the moment. Paul Ryan is being urged to take the post, and we should learn in short order whether that urging had any effectiveness. And last night on 60 MINUTES, President Obama talked about an entire range of issues, including Hillary Clinton and the email scandal, saying that she made a mistake, but that national security was not endangered.

For the past 81 years, Americans have celebrated Columbus Day on the second Monday of October. That won’t change this year, but a growing number of cities are seeking to abolish the traditional holiday and replace it with a day that acknowledges and celebrates the millions of people who were already living here when Christopher Columbus arrived, mainly Native Americans. This year, the recast holiday known as Indigenous Peoples Day will take place in at least nine cities across the United States, including in Albuquerque, N.M., Anadarko, Okla., Portland, Ore., St. Paul, Minn., and Olympia, Wash. Last year, Seattle voted to change the federal Columbus Day holiday to Indigenous Peoples Day, making it the second major U.S. city after Minneapolis to adopt the change.
