There's no pleasing some people.
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed a bill commemorating the remarkable openly gay politician, Harvey Milk. The bill states that May 22, Harvey's birthday, will now be honored as a day of remembrance and significance. Last year, the governor had originally vetoed the bill, claiming that it should be handled on a local level.
But as we said, there is a lot of bad blood between the gay community and the Californian government and Arnold is looking to mend fences.
Oh please, the man was in office 11 months as a city councilman before being gunned down and passed one ordinance that benefitted solely his constituents. As his bubbe might say, nu, for this he gets a whole day? How about a day honoring Ronald Reagan who did more for this state and its people.
But Perez has it right - Miss Thing, it's tokenism, pure and simple. Unfortunately, it comes at taxpayer expense as we pay for public schools to put together "appropriate" lesson plans for this.
Just as major household appliances and mattresses are the focus of sales for Presidents Day, I'm hoping this inspires shoe outlets to take advantage of this holiday.
