Default Supe wants to rename SF Intl Airport after Harvey Milk

How about a park instead? I say leave the airport as is but that's me.

Campos wants Harvey Milk's name on SFO - SFGate

Isn't there already a special day of recognition for him for public schools?

How about the Post Office on the old People's Temple site?

If that's your reasoning then I think Pat Brown International would be more appropriate. He did a hell of a lot more for San Francisco and the State than Milk.

Milk was a figure of national and even international prominence, which is more than can be said for Norman Mineta.

If someone from his lineage wants to donate a $10 million + to SFO than go ahead a rename it, but there is no reason for tax payers to pay for it.

So why didn't they do this a couple years after his death, not a couple years after a well-known Hollywood biopic?
