At parades, festivals and family gatherings across the country, Columbus Day is as much a celebration of Italian-American culture as of the European discovery of the New World - a day when "everybody is Italian." Yet many people, including some Italian-Americans, may be surprised to learn that Italians and their culture were not accepted in the United States until relatively recently. When my maternal grandparents came to the United States from Italy in the early 1920s, Italians, who were one of the largest immigrant groups, were widely considered to be among the least desirable.

But it's dispiriting to find a major record company jeopardizing a performance of Verdi's Requiem, one of the supreme monuments of Western music, by inserting into the mix pop tenor sensation Andrea Bocelli.

"Have you got any of that thar New Age Flamenco Sweat Lodge gittar music?" Er, maybe. In fact, yes. It sounds like Hank Williams stamping out a fire in a wigwam, but we've got it. Always wondered who listened to this stuff. "An' is he usin' gut strings? Cain't stan' them wire things." Er ... "An' he don't use them low strings too much, do he?" This very choosy gentleman is known to his hapless victims as the Hillbilly From Hell. Roughly once a month, he gets out of his rocking chair, puts away the shotgun, turns off the radio (permanently tuned to the local Native American Flamenco station)
