Thursday Trivia...



"Born in New York, he came to San Francisco and ran a camera shop. His financial skills got him elected to the Board of Supervisors in 1977, becoming the first acknowledged gay city official. Known as the “Mayor of Castro Street,” he helped pass the city’s first gay rights ordinance. In 1978, he and Mayor George Moscone were shot and killed by an ex-cop and fellow board member."

After last week's comic disaster, I thought this might be more of an accessible teaser for your brain. As always, refrain from too much googling and give it a minute to settle :) I'll be waiting for your hints in the comment section...what are you waiting for?!

A lovely weekend to everybody!

First! I had absolutely no idea who this was, so I had to Google, sorry. Now I know, so I'm off to the kitchen for something cold and white to drink.

Theresa, having finished the chapter of bones in my anatomy book, I can tell you that calcium is indeed very important and good for you! Well done!

This guy is one of my all-time heroes. That's all I have to say.

Morgan, you never know :) Stay tuned!

TLP, yeah I bet. See this is my European heritage, I heard about him last night on the radio and researched a bit this morning and was absolutely fascinated...

AP3, now this does not surprise me one bit! :)

Seems people are already mi...honing in on his name. What a tragic story though, huh?

 
At 19:53, Blogger Nessa said...

I actually remember when this happened. Thanks for making me feel old.

He shares his first name with another being of white... immortalized by the Jimmy Stewart movie of the same name about his large white best friend.

Most who run do so to bilk.
And replace their old linen with silk,
If you want indication
Who speaks for the nation
There's police tape around all of that ilk.

G, I know...I was quite surprised when I read about him and shocked at the short lived out-come.

nessa, don't mention it!

terry, allow me to chew on that for a bit

Doug, there you are...Missed you in the upper rows. "do so to bilk" where do these perls come from?

You know the name you seek was not the one he was given at birth? When I discovered that tidbit, I wondered what his name had been -- and when I discovered THAT, I understood how he could be content was a white rabbit.
