Here's a look at the week ahead on our "Sunday Morning" Calendar:

      
Monday is Columbus Day, also celebrated as Indigenous Peoples Day in six states and more than 130 cities, including Washington, D.C.

Who was Christopher Columbus? Mo Rocca embarks on a journey to discover more about the explorer we honor each year (from October 7, 2012):

Tuesday sees the fourth Democratic Presidential Debate, this time with a dozen candidates sharing the stage.

       
Wednesday is National Fossil Day, sponsored by the National Park Service, offering kids the chance to be Junior Paleontologists.

       
Thursday's the day for the Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drill, with millions of people in California (and around the world) learning to Drop, Cover, and Hold On.

      
On Friday, Wynton Marsalis, the trumpeter of our "Sunday Morning" theme "Abblasen," turns 58.
