Harvey Milk was an enemy of "I'm gonna."

When Harvey was around, you tell him in the morning you're going to do some good thing and he says, "When?" He sees you in the afternoon and says, "Have you yet?"

The Harvey Milk memorial move is generous intention into action in a New York minute--you know, starting slightly before now.

I thought of writing this down while walking past the building where Harvey Milk died, which figures. It's easy imagine Harvey Milk having an impatient, activist approach to being dead.

It's always an event to pass an activist on the street because they know what you should do, and they are hard to argue with if the your true inner rebuttal is, "No, I just want to live my little life and follow the path of least resistance, thank you very much."
