Crash Day Today. Crash Day Everyday.

The mayor of LA has dubbed today, Crash Day, in honor of the movie. Why? Because Christopher Columbus and Martin Luther King Jr. got THEIR own holidays.
While I do think Crash was a good movie, I don't think it deserves its own holiday. Seriously, Christopher Columbus was a huge part in discovering America (even if only by tradition) and Martin Luther King Jr. was the greatest civil rights organizer this country has ever seen. Crash has yet to discover a new world or gain rights for an oppressed people. All it did was win the Best Picture Oscar. So, in my book, that means no special day for Crash. There's no The English Patient Day.
