More ways to waste time


You gotta give 'em hope

I haven't seen Milk, but oh how I want to. I feel as if I had been there, and in a way I had. The year was 1978, we had just moved permanently to San Francisco, and I was a freshman in high school. I remember it clearly, the special assembly, the breast beating and rending of cloth was all because Mayor George Moscone had been killed. Harvey Milk was barely mentioned. Even then, the inequality of that struck me.

History seems to have redressed the balance.

I wonder if the "Twinkie defense" would still get you manslaughter as opposed to first-degree murder today.

That is my favourite Fleetwood Mac tune. Thanks.
