What's next... Frisco International? The 415? Leave it as is "San Francisco International" that pretty much represents ALL in The City.

HEY! Don't dis The Duke. John Wayne was a neighbor of mine back in the 60s-70s. I knew John Wayne. He was a "towering" figure with national appeal compared to Harvey Milk.

And Milk was just a camera shop owner and politician once describd in the New York Times as "a sad eyed man—another aging hippie with long, long hair, wearing faded jeans and pretty beads".

And your point is?

He was also a trailblazer who led a generation of gay people out of the closet.

PS. John Wayne's real name was Marion. Just saying.

Well aware of that. Thank his parents. In life he was actually larger than he appeared on screen and was a really nice, unpretentious guy - a better role model, in my mind, than someone who consisenty chose younger and younger temporary partners as his play-things.

As opposed to John Wayne's second and third wives, who were, respectively, 17 and 21 years his junior?
