Supervisor Exits Board Room Rather Than Address Orange County's Snub of Harvey Milk Day

Supervisors in Orange County, California won't recognize slain gay civil rights leader Harvey Milk, on his state-sanctioned day, the L.A. Times reports : Activists, for the second year, asked Orange County supervisors Tuesday to recognize Milk's birthday with a proclamation, but the board declined the opportunity, as it did last year.

Why should Harvey Milk, a gay politian be recognized with a proclamation? What did he do for California? Militant gay groups can't find a gay hero so they just make one up.

The Liberal Times falsely reported (as they usually do) what happened in the Board of Supervisor's meeting; now they want to make a correction in their news story. I hope they also make an apology to the supervisor they slandered.
