Forgot the Milk

California lawmakers passed a bill to have a little day of remembrance for Harvey Milk, who was killed in his office back in 1978. The fact that he was gay is probably what got him killed and what drove Arnold to veto this bill. In thirty years we've gone from killing prominent gays to simply ignoring them, we still have a long way to go.

For me the story of Mayor Moscone and Harvey Milk will forever be tied to "I fought the law" by the Dead Kennedys.
