Lightbulb Milk

With his sister-in-law..

In front of Castro Camera in 73..

Moscone ultimately decided to appoint Don Horanzy, a more liberal federal housing official, rather than reappoint White.. On Monday, November 27, 1978, the day Moscone was set to formally appoint Horanzy to the vacant seat, White had an unsuspecting friend drive him to San Francisco City Hall.. He was carrying a five-round .38-caliber Smith & Wesson Model 36 Chief's Special loaded with hollow-point bullets, his service revolver from his work as a police officer, with ten extra rounds of ammunition in his coat pocket.. White slipped into City Hall through a first floor window, avoiding the metal detectors.. He proceeded to the mayor's office, where Moscone was conferring with Brown..Wishing to avoid a public scene, Moscone suggested they retreat to a private lounge adjacent to the mayor's office, so they would not be overheard by those waiting outside.. As Moscone lit a cigarette and proceeded to pour two drinks, White pulled out the revolver.. He then fired shots at the mayor's shoulder and chest, tearing his lung.. Moscone fell to the floor and White approached Moscone, poised his gun 6 inches (150 mm) from the mayor's head, and fired two additional bullets into Moscone's ear lobes, killing him instantly..

White had been a San Francisco police officer, and later became a firefighter..On November 18, news broke of the mass deaths of members of Peoples Temple in Jonestown.. Prior to the group's move to Guyana, Peoples Temple had been based in San Francisco, so most of the dead were recent Bay Area residents, including Leo Ryan, the United States Congressman who was murdered in the incident..The city was plunged into mourning, and the issue of White's vacant Board of Supervisors seat was pushed aside for several days..

Garbage - Milk..

White proceeded to his former office, and intercepted Harvey Milk on the way, asking him to step inside for a moment.. Milk agreed to join him.. Once the door to the office was closed, White positioned himself between the doorway and Milk, pulled out his revolver and opened fire on Milk.. The first bullet hit Milk's right wrist, as he tried to protect himself.. White continued firing rapidly, hitting Milk twice more in the chest, then fired a fourth bullet at Milk's head, killing him, followed by a fifth shot into his skull at close range..White fled the scene as Feinstein entered the office where Milk lay dead.. She grabbed his wrist for a pulse, her finger entering Milk's bullet wound..Feinstein then announced the murders to a stunned public, stating: "As President of the Board of Supervisors, it's my duty to make this announcement.. Both Mayor Moscone & Supervisor Harvey Milk have been shot and killed..The suspect is Supervisor Dan White..The revolver used, serial number 1J7901, has gone missing from police evidence storage, possibly having been destroyed.White committed suicide in 1985, a little more than a year after his release from prison..Moscone and Milk both lay in state at San Francisco City Hall.. Moscone's fun-eral at St Mary's Cathedral was attended by 4,500 people..He was buried at Holy Cross Cemetery in Colma - Canadian-American James Randi of the International Brotherhood of Magicians & Magic Circle in the UK, holding the rank of Member of the Inner Magic Circle with Gold Star..In a March 21, 2010, blog entry, Randi came out as gay, a move he explained was inspired by seeing Milk..When to Master or Tyler we sip, we mustn't forget and indulge too much, that we may not lose our grip..., hey..I'm Harvey..All men are created equal..No matter how hard you try, you can never erase those words..Some people took me out after work..The Great American Insurance Company...
