Morning AP Roundup
Probably not going to be a morning routine, but I’m going to do five-hours of classroom observation today, so I’ve got a little more time this morning. (Warning, the snark is running high this morning)
First one’s a short one, so I’ll just include the whole silliness:
SAN FRANCISCO – Fresh from his best actor Oscar for his performance as Harvey Milk, Sean Penn is pushing California to officially recognize the late gay politician’s birthday.
State Senator Mark Leno plans to reintroduce a bill Tuesday with Penn by his side designating Milk’s birthday a “day of significance.”
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed the same bill last year.
In his veto message, the governor said Milk should be honored in San Francisco but not statewide.
Leno says Penn’s award shows that Schwarzenegger’s argument about Milk being only of provincial interest no longer holds up.
That’s good stuff. C’mon, the guy got an Oscar! That means everyone cares about it, even the majority of state residents who voted to not allow gay marriage!
