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...?

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...

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?

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.

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.

In 2011, officials in Honolulu, Hawaii began construction on a controversial 20-mile rail project partly because of almost $1.8 billion in federal subsidies to President Barack Obama´s home state. The project´s total cost estimate stands at $5.3 billion, but if other similar projects are any indication, the final price tag will increase dramatically before anyone even gets to buy a ticket. What´s playing out in the Aloha State is happening all over the country. “This rail project is our bridge to nowhere”, says University of Hawaii law professor Randall Roth. “We are convinced that it will be billions of dollars

House of Raeford officially closed its turkey slaughterhouse in Raeford on Thursday, putting 950 people out of work. The company first announced plans to shutter the facility in March. It’s also closing its turkey hatchery in Rose Hill and ending its relationship with about 140 turkey farmers in Eastern North Carolina.

Amid the backlash against Hillsdale College President Larry Arnn for referring to minority students as “dark ones,” the Michigan Department of Education acknowledged Thursday that it sent inspectors to study the school, including its student diversity. The department reversed after earlier saying no such review had taken place. On Wednesday, Arnn told lawmakers during testimony against the state’s adoption of Common Core standards in reading, writing and math that his college had been approached by the Department of Education because it “didn’t have enough dark ones,” referring to minority students. While Arnn’s comments drew criticism from many lawmakers and alumni,

Philadelphia — New Jersey´s law requiring residents show a "justifiable need" to get a permit to carry a handgun in public was upheld by a federal appeals court. A mandate that residents demonstrate an "urgent necessity for self-protection" to get authorization to publicly carry a handgun doesn´t run afoul of U.S. constitutional protections of the right to bear firearms, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals in Philadelphia ruled Wednesday. "The justifiable need standard is a longstanding regulation that enjoys presumptive constitutionality," the panel wrote. The ruling comes more than four months after the U.S. Supreme Court rebuffed

Forced to march in a human chain and lined up with hands behind their heads, this is how to round up illegal immigrants Russian-style.

Trenton — An HMO that earned $1.7 billion from 2009 to 2010 by providing Medicaid coverage to 350,000 low-income and disabled New Jerseyans didn´t try very hard to detect fraudulent billing -- identifying only $1.6 million, or one-tenth of one percent in improper payouts, according to a report the Office of the State Comptroller released today.

Washington - As the military begins to embrace gays and lesbians, one group feels left out: transgender troops. These men and women weren´t even a blip on the nation´s radar until former Navy SEAL Team 6 member Chris Beck revealed in a memoir released last month that he had become Kristin Beck, a woman. It´s unknown how many transgender troops are serving in the U.S. military, largely because they would get kicked out for coming out. About 700,000 Americans in a population of more than 300 million are transsexuals, according to a 2011 study by the Williams Institute at the UCLA School

White House insiders say President Barack Obama is in “a funk” about what he sees as increasing stagnation and failures surrounding his second term and some worry that the President is becoming more distant and distracted. “He’s not the same Obama that came to the Oval Office after the 2008 elections,” a senior White House aided confided to friends in an email recently. “I’m worried.” Chicago Mayor and former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel tells friends that the Presidency has changed his longtime friend Obama and many of those changes are “not good.”

In 2008 and then again in 2012, after retired four-star General Colin Powell endorsed and then voted for Barack Obama, the former Secretary of State´s sanity was already in question. At least now, after having his email account hacked by high-level security-breacher Guccifer, Colin Powell´s besmirching of the Republican Party´s "shift to the right" and "identity crisis" finally makes sense.

The bulletin said that the highest threat levels are the Middle East and North Africa, “and possibly occurring in or emanating from the Arab Peninsula.”

For nearly a year, we have had no answer to why the administration lied about Benghazi — why it told the world, not to mention the parents of our murdered SEALs at the funeral of their sons, that the cause of that fatal conflagration was an anti-Islamic video no one saw, when the various arms of our executive branch (White House, State and intelligence) already knew, or strongly suspected, it was a terror attack orchestrated by al-Qaeda affiliates. You only have to read the now infamous talking points to know that. That this lie was deeply immoral is obvious.

Common sense tells me that cops don´t need a Taser or a shotgun to subdue a 95-year-old man.

I have a suggestion. How about an exhibit on Tawana Brawley? If the purpose of the new National Museum of African American History and Culture at the Smithsonian is to remember racial controversies, as the proposed Trayvon exhibit seems to confirm, then how about an honest look at the phenomenon of hate crime hoaxes? Particular attention should be paid to the role of the media in both the Trayvon and Tawana materials. Unquestionably, the media stirred up racial animus, and these incidents both contributed to raising racial tensions.

Police shot and killed an armed teen in the South Bronx early today after the suspect opened fire and refused to drop his gun, police said. Two rookie cops heard shots fired near East 151st Street and Courtlandt Avenue around 3 a.m. and ran in the direction of fire, police said. The uniformed officers saw Shaaliver Douse, 14, of the South Bronx, chasing another person through the streets, according to cops. Douse, who was arrested in May on attempted murder charges for shooting a 15-year-old, fired at the man running on East 151st Street this morning, police said.
