Campos wants Harvey
Milk´s name on SFO

San Francisco Chronicle, by Marisa Lagos

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 1/15/2013 4:28:53 PM

A San Francisco supervisor wants to rename the city´s airport in honor of civil rights leader Harvey Milk, a change supporters said would send a global message about the importance and struggles of gays and lesbians for equality. Supervisor David Campos will introduce legislation Tuesday that would place the proposal to rename San Francisco International Airport as Harvey Milk San Francisco International Airport before voters in November.(Snip) Campos said about 80 other U.S. airports are already named for individuals, none of whom are gay, and that SFO - which moves 40 million passengers annually, including 9 million international travelers

Comments:
Setting right a terrible injustice; I never thought to wonder how many airports were named after homosexuals. Might I suggest naming toilet stalls in honor of Larry Craig, Jim "Gay-American" McGreevey, George Michael...?

More appropriately, Tastycake can rename the Twinkie after him when they close the deal and start up production.

I lived in the Bay area when this happened. Milk was taunting Dan White at every turn and it drove him over the edge. Milk was a very evil Man and absolutely should not be considered some sort of Martyr. Makes me sick...

Milk may have been a jerk, but the "twinkie-fueled" murderer who killed him has already had his excuses made for him.

Sean Penn playing angelic Harvey Milk? and something from Hollywood was a fraud. Milk was a nasty queer in reality? Shocked.

Renaming an airport after an admitted homosexual sounds kinda queer to me.

Next thing you know, they´ll want to name an aircraft carrier after him.

The rest of the supervisors will have to vote for it - they don´t want to appear to be ´homophobic´.

We live in a very intolerant age.

It´s okay with me provided they put a picture of a Twinkie on the sign leading to the airport.

Excuse us, but wasn´t Harvey an ´associate´ of Jim Jones? The ´poison kool-aid as an instrument of religious enlightenment´ guy?

Maybe a hospital HIV wing would be a more appropriate namesake...

It grows a bit tedious watching gays try and ´glorify the struggles´ of a lifestyle that the CDC notes is now behind 1000 adolescent males a year contracting HIV. So much for ´normal and healthy´, eh San Fran?

Correction to above...that´s 1000 adolescent (12 to 21 is the CDC spectrum) per MONTH contracting HIV. Not ´yearly´...

Official snack of SFO...

Harvey Milk with Twinkie.
He´d like you to dunk it.

You have to break some eggs to make an omelet.
So I´m not gunna cry over spilled milk if they do this.
I think they will sour on the idea, however.

Dislike Milk?

Don´t care what they name the airport-- I won´t be using it. I have been on a personal boycott of San Francisco since 1997. It´s a very permissive city. Seems as though anything, any outrage goes. The bums in Union Square and surrounding streets were aggressive, would not take no for an answer.

Only 2% of gay men reach the age of 60. They all practice suicide by lifestyle. Milk just had a little help in being part of the 98%.

I live in SF and in my opinion Campos is doing everything he can to ruin this city - he´s the worse Supervisor I have ever seen. His last grand idea was for all everyone under 18 to ride public transit for free even though the transit system is running huge deficits. Some background on this idiot - he arrived in SF as an illegal alien and then somehow got his citizenship. Also, he is a gay man and is terming out of his position on the SF Board of Supervisors and is now looking to become a state legislator. He´s counting on the hispanic and gay communities to put him into his new office. Just say NO to Campos on everything.

I found San Francisco to be an unappealing city too. Dirty and full of homeless men. For such a liberal city, why are humans living on the streets? They can glorify whomever want. I feel badly for the sane folk who live in the Bay Area.

Police are investigating three recent attacks in the city they believe are part of the “knockout" game, in which an unsuspecting person is attacked for no reason with the goal of knocking the person out with one punch. The three attacks this month have occurred in the 700 block of Main Street, the area of 87 Millbury St. and on Chatham near Main Street.

The 3.1 inches of snow that fell Monday night into Tuesday morning brought this season’s total to 94.8 inches, topping the old record of 93.6 inches set during 1880-81.

Baltimore — An evening bike ride for a cyclist turned violent after he was attacked by a group of teenagers–and it’s caught on camera. Rochelle Ritchie has more. The man was wearing a helmet with one additional feature his attackers did not know about–a camera positioned on top. Now that video is in the hands of Baltimore City Police, who are combing through the images. It was a dark Saturday evening when Mike Bowman, 32, peddled his way down Guilford Avenue toward Hampden, where he was meeting friends. “There’s a bunch of kids that hang there at Lanvale. Before I

New Jersey budget gap keeps growing

Four days after a downgraded credit rating, New Jersey has more bad financial news: Tax collections were once again short of Governor Christie’s already lowered expectations. This time, the gap was $145 million for March – a full 7 percent short of what Christie projected for the month, according to data released Monday by the state Department of Treasury. That means the Christie administration has to make up that gap with just three months left in the state’s fiscal year, time that includes the crucial income tax collection month of April. Already, the administration has said it cut nearly $700

Nashville, Tenn. — A bill seeking to allow Tennesseans to openly carry firearms in public without permits was overwhelmingly defeated a House subcommittee on Monday night. The House Finance Subcommittee voted 10-1 against the measure sponsored by Republican Rep. Micah Van Huss of Jonesborough, who later told reporters that he will abandon an effort to bypass committees and call the bill for a full floor vote. (Snip) The full Senate had passed its version of the bill on a 25-2 vote last week. The House panel voted down the bill after first adopting an amendment that stripped out projected $100,000

For nearly two decades, Barbara Garnaus maintained a modest, delicate life balance: keeping her part-time Orange County school district job and juggling her bills and credit card debt. Now 63, living alone, she counts every dollar, has no cellphone and commutes an hour in traffic so she can keep an affordable apartment in Laguna Woods. Having good health helped. Garnaus got by without medical insurance, relying on yearly exams at a free clinic. But that changed last year: Garnaus now needs treatment for cancer, and she bought insurance under Obamacare. Thousands of Californians like Garnaus are poised to reap significant

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth.

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
