CA Senate Milks Harvey Bernard's memory
By a 24-14 party-line-plus-one-Republican vote [thanks, Sen. Abel Maldonado (R-Santa Maria)], the California Senate has again approved a bill that would honor Harvey Milk:
The bill by Sen. Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, would designate each May 22—Milk's birthday—as a "day of special significance" to recognize the late San Francisco supervisor's contributions to the state.

The measure now heads to the Assembly, where it passed last year, before moving on to Gov. Schwarzenegger, who vetoed the 2008 version. So what will get the governator to sign it this year? Well, easy -- we'll just get Gus Van Sant to offer him a role in the forthcoming Milk sequel:
It's the perfect post-gubernatorial film comeback! Much better than his other option: Slumming-as-governor Millionaire

Just seemed like something your site would be interested (engraged?) about, if you haven't seen it already.
